Equipment is what we need to get started

By Nshimirimana Tharcisse | CEO

It is a great opportunity for us to share the progress of our project: a maternity unit to save 2 300 lives in Burundi. We are grateful for the support we received from the community we serve, the Burundi Ministry of Health as well as from you all. The Village Microclinic has already got permission from the Minitry of health to open our maternity unit as soon as we get necessary equipment.

Building activities are at 100 percent of completion. The process has been long and involved many stakeholders. We can't thank them enough for the great support we received from them.We have felt their love and kindness. This project has been able to give jobs for the last 6 months to 34 persons among whom 21 were female while 13 were male. These jobs allowed them to provide for their families, send their children to school and invested a part of their earnings.

The construction site attracted more people who were interested in learning what was going on. The Village Microclinic took this opportunity to conduct awareness campaign on different topics related to HIV/AIDS/STDs prevention and management at community level, gender-based violence prevention, water and hygiene services, neglected tropical diseases awareness and management, maternal and child health services provision at community level. These awareness campaigns have reached 635 persons in the community we serve.

Community  health workers, administration and religious leaders have been supportive and were represented during our awareness campaigns. They also gave inkind contribution in form of labor, advocacy and technical support.

We are currently fundraising for equipment for the maternity unit and hope to open it very soon. I have attached some pictures of our labor room.

A trillion thanks for your support.

With gratitude

Dr Tharcisse Nshimirimana
