The Village Microclinic was visited by the Segal Family Foundation delegation this Tuesday, June 21, 2022. Dr. Tharcisse Nshimirimana, the founder and CEO of The Village Microclinic had the opportunity to present to this delegation the activities already accomplished and other ongoing activity for the well-being of the community in slums and peri-urban areas.
To start, Dr Tharcisse Nshimirimana indicated that the construction works of the premises of Rukundo Medical Polyclinic are going well and that after the agreement of the ministry in charge of health, this medical center will be inaugurated. He took this opportunity too to inform that some materials are missing.
Presenting to the Segal Family Foundation delegation how The Village Microclinic manufactures chlorine, Dr. Tharcisse Nshimirimana informed that this chlorine is distributed freely to places that welcome many people namely churches and schools for the disinfection of hands and toilets. Asked if a certain quantity of this chlorine cannot be sold so as to increase the income and chlorine production, Dr. Tharcisse replied that before the certification, it was a bit complicated but that now with the certification, it really is possible.
Informing the Segal Family Foundation delegation, Dr. Tharcisse Nshimirimana indicated that apart from the Rukundo Medical Polyclinic, a second large pavilion will be built to welcome a good number of patients from the suburbs and peri-urban areas who have to walk long distances to reach a health center.
This large pavilion will be built on five floors and will include the services of gynecology, pediatrics, hospitalization, internal medicine as well as a large laboratory.
