In order to break the vicious circle of poverty, the protection of health is vital.
For that reason, we participated in a basic health insurance scheme for especially poor children and young People in Ruli – in cooperation with the excellent hospital in Ruli and the health station of the Dominican sisters.
With only 2â¬ we could offer a child an insurance for one year.
We insured more than 500 orphans and several hundred very poor families.
We could stop this successful project in 2012, when Rwanda introduced the basic state health insurance for everybody.
