|We visited the Military Hospital, being directed by Dr. Venerand.|
We asked if we could see their Physical Therapy department. The Dows hope to find the best Physical Therapists to train in this church wheelchair program.
and OIDEB was a warm ,charitable, and highly esteemed man named Athanase. You will see him further on in the blog. He took this picture at the dinner party he gave for us. His beautiful wife, Candide, is in the center front. The meal was amazing and for dessert, the chef that you see on the right brought out the shishkabobs.
It was an outdoor dinner and we watched much lightning and thunder but it began raining right after we left.The company at the dinner table was interesting and fun! The lady in red, Denise, was also working in charitable causes. She is straight out of Ireland and proud of her Catholic background.. She has been in Burundi, blessing the people's lives for over 20 years.
This is the office of the Ministry of Health in Burundi. We met several times here.
We also visited with the Cheif of Projects, Mr. Marc, at Handicap International,
Secretary General Abbe , which works through the Catholic Church, kindly took us through the children's school classes and dormitory and other facilities at the school. It was very clean and efficient. The children were obedient and content while we were there.
It was hard to believe what we were experiencing with our own eyes.
It was celan and well organized. We were so impressed.
All of the skills are taught and then the schools helps them get their first job!!! This school has been functioning well since 1996!
