The lives of 38 children saved thanks to the FBAU


Apr 16, 2024

GITEGA, April 16th (ABP) – The First Lady of Burundi and Chairperson of “Bonne Action Umugiraneza” Foundation (FBAU), Mrs Angeline Ndayishimiye, asks parents to keep a close eye on the health of their children and have them treated in real time.

She made that appeal on Saturday 13 April at the headquarters of the foundation, which is based in Kibimba in the commune of Giheta, Gitega province (central Burundi), during the joy-sharing ceremonies organised by the same foundation for 38 children who had benefited from health care outside the country thanks to the foundation.

The First Lady backed up her remarks by reminding parents that one of their duties towards their children is to see them treated. In Burundi, she said, that was becoming an easy task because health care is free.

Mrs. Ndayishimiye wished a speedy recovery to a child still undergoing treatment, before granting him assistance worth five million Burundian francs (5,000,000 BIF). She praised the FBAU’s partners, including the Italians, for having contributed to the care of those children. She urged Burundians to develop a heart open to charity in order to sympathise with those in need.

The children’s parents praised the First Lady’s charitable spirit and wished her divine blessings and every success for the FBAU.
