Working with the Rwandan Ministry of Health, Shyira operates two health centers in Gakenke and Burera districts. The centers see 70-80 patients a day, with their biggest services going toward pre- and post-natal care, family planning and reproductive health counseling, and treating intestinal infections.
One of the biggest health issues in Rwanda is contaminated water that leads to infections such as cholera and giardia. Shyira is diligently working to fight these diseases by installing water tanks to parishes through the diocese. The tanks collect and store rain water, providing the community free access to clean water throughout the year.
Now let us learn about you! The life changing work we do here at Shyira is made possible in part by our generous partners. We hope you've enjoyed what you've seen and look forward to connecting with you soon.
