BUJUMBURA September 8th (ABP) – The “Bonne Action Umugiraneza” foundation represented by the First Lady of Burundi, Mrs. Angeline Ndayishimiye organized, Thursday September 7, 2023, in Bujumbura, a visit to vulnerable people taken care of by Jesuit Fathers who are in Bujumbura Rohero district and to people living with HIV/AIDS cared for by the national association for the support of HIV-positive people and AIDS patients (ANSS) based in Kigobe. She was the bearer of aid for these vulnerable people.

The legal representative of the said foundation at the same time chairman of the board of directors, Mr. Joseph Ndayisenga indicated that this aid consisted of porridge flour, sugar and juice. He called on the Jesuit Fathers to maintain this spirit of mutual aid while thanking those who give their body and soul to assist these vulnerable people.

At the ANSS Turiho center, aid consisting of sugar, porridge flour, juice and notebooks was provided to the vulnerable. That center, which is responsible for primarily caring for people living with HIV, has 350 children who are cared for by this association and who are currently in good health.

Mr. Ndayisenga congratulated the ANSS for the services offered before pointing out that this association includes a national laboratory. He also encouraged beneficiaries who regularly follow doctors’ advice and regularly take medications to reduce viral load, inviting them to closely monitor their children’s education at home and at school. Aside from the care of people living with HIV, Jeanne Gapiya executive director of the ANSS indicated that she also specializes in the care of comorbid diseases such as the proctology service, diabetes, hepatitis B and Tuberculosis, mental illnesses, asthma and others.

The beneficiaries of ANSS services welcomed this aid from the “Bonne Action Umugiraneza” foundation. They took that opportunity to ask the First Lady of Burundi to support medicines for cases of cervical cancer, hepatitis and other diseases.
