Conclusion of Bisate Health Center Water Project Phase 2 – Rwanda

This project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Amy Studenic. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

The project was to connect the health center’s existing water source to the hospitalization rooms for men, women and children, one consultation room and a laboratory room.

Amy reports:

Thanks to the Water Charity Appropriate Projects grant, Bisate Health Center now has fully installed water into all major rooms at the health center. They were able to purchase all of the necessary supplies and labor to install water into two hospitalization rooms, the last remaining consultation room without running water, the laboratory as well as the distribution pharmacy. With a little unexpected extra money they also purchased materials to improve the existing main water line to their health center, which will ensure running water reaches the clinic consistently for years to come.

The health center staff and community came together in a remarkable way to not only envision this project, but also implement it and make it a true success. Because of this project, health center staff are operating in a cleaner, safer and more hygienic environment, and patients are never lacking for clean, running water to drink, cook and clean with. Running water is something that this community does not take for granted, and they are truly thankful for Appropriate Projects and all of the wonderful people who provided donations and made this project possible.

We in turn are grateful to Amy for implementing this excellent project and again extend our gratitude to Six Senses Resorts & Spas and Amy’s friends and family for providing the funding.
