The hospice in Rwanda is a home where you live until the end


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.

  • 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)

“A glass of banana wine and a visit from my wife. I don’t need anything else today.” replies Marcel, when asked about his dream gift for grandfather’s day. The 86-year-old former primary school teacher has been a patient of our Rwandan hospice for several years. Every time he talks about his wife, he smiles so radiantly that it is hard to believe his family’s dramatic story. The genocide in Rwanda took away all five of his children. He was left alone with his wife, and for several years, since he has been struggling with cancer, he has wandered from hospital to hospital until he came to us.

The hospice in Rwanda is a home where one lives until the end. It is a place that gives its residents another day without pain, in safety and in an environment that reminds them every day that they still deserve to be loved and cared for.

If you would like to give Marcel a gift for Grandfathers’ Day, apart from a glass of wine and a visit from his wife, which we will take care of, we strongly encourage you to fund a day of care at the hospice, which functions thanks to your support. We also encourage you to send your good wishes to Marcel and the other patients, who are well aware of your support and are immensely grateful for it every day.
