This project aims at building a maternity unit to save 2,300 lives in Burundi.

Building activities of our maternity unit are going well. We are happy about the progress we have made since we start this project. The community we serve is impatiently waiting for the opening ceremony of this unit because they have to travel many miles to reach the nearest hospital. It is nice to see how the community we serve, local authorities, religious leaders and community leaders are supportive and contribute to the progress of our work. The Ministry of public health and AIDS control in Burundi is encouraging us to go ahead with our work and provide us with any support we need.

With your support, we have been able to:

  • Cover the maternity unit with sheets iron, 
  • Install doors and windows;
  • Paving the interior
  • Perform plastering and painting;

We are looking forward to:

  • Putting ceiling;
  • Making electrical and evacuation installations;
  • Putting floor tiles and other interior work;
  • Purchasing equipment for this unit

We are grateful for your support and are happy that you have chosen to be on our side to make the world a better place.

Our ptoject , a maternity unimt to save 2,300 lives in Burundi, has started with big enthusiasm and positive energy among our staff and the community we serve. We have been able to set plans, raise foundation and build walls of the first pavilion of our maternity unit. The community has been supportive and contributed through manual work and serving as brick layers' helper. Their enthusiasm and optimism were encouraging and let us feel the importance of makindg sure they have a free space where every mother and child have an opportunity to be healthy and thrive.  

What brings us more joy and continue to give us hope  is the knowledge the community we serve is on our side and is ready to set up and make their contribution to make a difference. They are the reason why The Village Microclinic exists. Thanks for your continued support.
