The hospice in Kabuga is a place full of stories

Rwanda

Rwanda is one of the smallest countries on the African continent, and the most densely populated one. There are around 463 inhabitants per 1km2 here! Due to its natural landscape, Rwanda is sometimes referred to as a land of a thousand hills, and due to its history, also a land of a thousand problems.

Overview:
  • around 12 million inhabitants
  • in 1994, it was a place of genocide – in 100 days, about 1 million people of the Tutsi tribe were murdered, 2 million escaped from the country
  • agricultural country – farming generates about 63% of income from export (including coffee, tea, bananas)

The hospice in Kabuga, the first and so far only one in Rwanda, is a place full of stories, laughter and tears. Our residents come here sometimes for several years and sometimes only for a few days – but it is thanks to you that they can live their last moments with dignity.

We want you to remember them. We asked them today what their advice is to the younger generation and what is most important to them. It is thanks to you that they can spend this time with a smile.

One day of a patient’s stay in our hospice costs around PLN 50. The hospice does not make any profit, but it has to cover the salaries of the staff (nurses and doctor), pay for electricity and water, food for the patients, care products and medicines. They could not afford even a fraction of such care themselves. By funding a day of care for the suffering and abandoned, we are saying to them: ‘You don’t have to worry about anything anymore’.

This amount will allow for equipping pharmacy shelves for the first half of the year. Ania and Mateusz will take care of this, and they will fly to Togo in February and fill the shelves with the most essential antibiotics, antimalarial drugs, and pain relievers. The Saoudé Pharmacy has people to save. It cannot succeed without your support.
