We received this update from A Partnership in Caring (APIC) volunteer Maria van Vonderen. Today Maria and fellow APIC volunteer Carolyn Rideout visited SAVE, one of the first Catholic missions in Rwanda. It is also home to the Mother House of the Benebikira Sisters. It is just few kilometres north of Butare in southern Rwanda:

Visited the Saint Bernadette School in SAVE.

It is the oldest school in the country with over 800 students.

Met with 11 students who receive funding to attend school.

They were very engaging and curious about life in Canada.

A Partnership in Caring Volunteers Visit Health Centre in Kabuga

An update from A Partnership In Caring (APIC) volunteer Maria van Vonderen in Rwanda:

This is the health centre in Kabuga. It is owned and run by the Benebikiri Sisters. It is very wellrun but scarce in resources.

We donated medical supplies as well as children’s Tylenol and Advil

They deliver about 130 babies each month. Their 2 birthing beds are in very bad shape, they are both crowded into one room , separated only by a curtain. APIC will purchase a new birthing bed for the clinic. There were approximately 12 women in post-partum care. The average length of stay is 24 hours. All mothers and babies were doing well.

The clinic offers HIV care and counselling services to clients and they offer a HIV program to mothers and their children up to age 2.

They have a pharmacy, lab services, a dental hygienist, they do medical assessments and keep clients up to 24 hours for observation. If ongoing medical support is required, the client is transferred to a local hospital.

Medical Supplies Delivered to the Benebirkira Sisters

In Kabuga, Rwanda today, our volunteers with A Partnership in Caring delivered medical supplies donated by our supporters to the Benebikira Sisters.

The Benebikira Sisters are a Roman Catholic diocesan community living and working in many countries in Africa, including Rwanda. They are key partners for our volunteers in Rwanda, and administer schools, homes for orphaned children, and district health centers.
