KIRA” is a Kirundi word which means “RECOVER“. In this program – we focus on medical treatment for the patients by supporting them with:
- Access to drugs – without Health Insurance, which most of our patients don’t have, and without the state subsidy – our patients can’t afford necessary drugs.
- Assistance in receiving medical care abroad.
In the past 1 year and a half we helped 200 patients with the KIRA program: we raised 500 $ for drugs, 800 $ for medical treatment abroad/ helped sending 2 patients abroad for medical treatment.
