Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic affects Burundi, a developing country with pre-existing health problems, few quarantine beds and medical facilities in both urban and rural communities, particularly in prisons, schools, centers for people with disabilities, street children, orphans and other communities of already vulnerable people such as in refugee camps and returnees are rare. COVID-19 exacerbates the socio-economic misfortune that the population lived and lives at present.

Solution

Your donation to this fund will quickly help to buy and acquire medical supplies and deliver and install them in vulnerable communities with the Burundian Ministry of Health to reduce and stop the pressure and spread of COVID-19 on the system. Burundian health care already overloaded and potentially save countless lives and cope with future epidemics. As soon as these communities become resilient,Your donation to this fund will support community socio-economic recovery and education in long term

Long-Term Impact

In collaboration with the Burundi Ministry of Health and in consultation with the office of the World Health Organization in Burundi, we will be purchasing and gradually acquiring medical supplies in Burundi as each step of the donation is made. We will carefully document the arrival, distribution and installation of the equipment.AVAPRSD Staff Members will follow step by step.
