MURAMVYA September 30th (ABP) – The NGO World Vision has made a donation to the health province and particularly to the Kiganda district in Muramvya province (center-west), consisting of 19 modern childbirth tables and 5 Olympus microscopes, a check on the site by ABP has revealed.
Those health materials will be allocated to the 12 health centers in the health district of Kiganda, as well as to the two hospitals in the districts of Muramvya and Kiganda, according to the medical director of the provincial health office, Dr. Polycarpe Ndayikeza.
In his speech related to the delivery, the representative of World vision, Jules Habonimana, who is also the head of the health service, said that these donated materials come to meet the needs displayed. Hence, he took this opportunity to ask the medical directors respectively at the provincial and district levels to order good management so that these donated delivery tables and Olympus microscopes can last a long time. That is when these sanitary kits are expensive because a gynecological table cost 1,950,000 BIF while the monetary value of an Olympus microscope is 5,500,000 BIF.
In their speeches of thanks to World Vision, whether it is the provincial doctor, that of the health district of Kiganda, Samuel Manirambona, and even the communal administrator of Kiganda, they in turn reviewed a good number of achievements of the NGO World Vision. Among them, they cited the fight against Covid-19, its participation in the intensive care of ulcerative wounds that had occurred in more than four thousand children in the health district of Kiganda. And more than three thousand children among them have already been healed, as confirmed by Dr Manirambona.
They also noted World Vision’s contribution in the sectors of education, food security, drinking water, hygiene and sanitation.
Since that NGO works in three out of five communes of Muramvya province, the medical director of the provincial office asked representatives of World Vision Muramvya to plead so that the two communes which are Bukeye and Muramvya can benefit from the flagship projects that World Vision is rising in favor of its area of action.
