Bisate Health Center Water Project – Rwanda

Bisate Health Center, Kinigi Sector, Musanze District, Northern Province, Rwanda

Community Description
Bisate is a rural, impoverished community located in a region of Rwanda that
receives consistent and abundant rainfall throughout the year.

The Bisate Health Center provides vital services to the community, including deliveries, consultations, wound dressing, laboratory procedures and basic hygiene procedures,

The health center currently functions without running water in its rooms, making it extremely difficult for the staff to perform basic services.

Project Description
Bisate Health Center will implement a plan to pipe and treat water from its existing rainwater collection tanks into all rooms requiring water.

Some of the rooms are already equipped with faucets, and all necessary materials are available locally.

The project will be implemented by Peace Corps Volunteer Jessica McGhie, in coordination with the Access Project, her host organization, which provides health center management support throughout the District of Musanze.

Project Impact
19,500 people within the Bisate Health Center catchment area will benefit from improved health care as a result of the project.

This project will have a high positive impact on the work environment for the staff, as well as on the safe treatment of the many patients of the Bisate Health Center. It is a critical project that the community has planned for, but has not been able to implement because of lack of funds. The project will have a widespread impact for a very small dollar amount.
