Thank you for your generous support

By Nshimirimana Tharcisse | CEO

Thousands of women die every year in Burundi due to pregnancy complications because our health care system does not reach them fast enough when they need them. For those who live in under-served communities, they receive health care too late, or not at all. Pregnant women must wait longer to receive prenatal care or treatment for diseases like malaria or pneumonia. These barriers leave behind thousands of patients every year in Burundi and lead to needless deaths rooted in poverty.

In order to respond to this challenge of health services delivery on time, The Village Microclinic took a challenge to build a maternity unit to save 2 300 lives in Burundi by increasing the number of women who deliver with assistance from a qualified health practitioner. This maternity unit will remove barriers that delay care for pregnant women and new-born in peri-urban areas of Bujumbura and therefore save lives. Building activities of the maternity unit are completed at 100% and hope to open it to the public very soon.

The Village Microclinic is happy and grateful for your continued and generous support. Thank you for the connections you made possible for us. As a result, we have been connected to DAK Foundation Australia and they donated a portable ultrasound machine to our maternity unit. This will help us increase our efficiency and quality of services delivered.

With gratitude,
