Today is the grand inauguration of the finished physiotherapy building!

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)
In 2023, we organized long-term palliative care for

38

persons in the country
We finance the education of

28

children of employees and deceased patients

Three years ago, we hired a physiotherapist who works wonders at the hospice in Kabuga. Seeing the importance of his work among the palliative patients, together with the sisters, we decided that we had to invest in physiotherapy. We went all the way!!! Today is the grand inauguration of the newly completed physiotherapy building!

The modern premises include all the facilities needed by the patients. Bathrooms, ramps, a large room which will now need to be fitted with professional equipment and… a terrace overlooking the Rwandan hills, where the patients will be able to relax after their hard work with the physiotherapist.

Marie Louise has been a patient at our hospice for four years. Paralysed by a fall from a great height and a fracture in three places in her spine, she receives the best possible help from the Sisters of the Angels. At home she would certainly not be able to cope on her own. Fortunately, there is Kabuga, where Marie Louise has her own place. Working with the physiotherapist has completely changed her life. She is happy to be here.

If you want miracles to happen in the lives of the patients of Rwanda’s only hospice, don’t hesitate! Visit GoodWorks 24/7 and donate a “day of care for a hospice patient” to Marie Louise and our other patients.

And since there is something to celebrate today, we have a surprise for you! The first ten people who purchase the “Day of care for a hospice patient” at GoodWorks 24/7 and send their details to [email protected] will receive a Good Factory mug painted with positive energy.

Morning coffee from this mug is a guarantee of a GOOD day!
