The complex owned by 22 cooperatives of Community Health Workers from different sectors of Karongi has been constructed from cooperatives members’ contributions where each cooperative provided a total of Rwf9.1 million.
At the inauguration ceremony in Karongion Friday, was the presence of Health Minister, Dr. Diane Gashumba and the minister of state for community development and social affairs, Dr. Alvera Mukabaramba among other officials.
Speaking at the ceremony, Gashumba commended the partnership that gave birth to such a facility.
“We are pleased to officially launch this house built without a bank loan; a symbol of dignity demonstrating that if you continue building meaningful partnerships such as with district leadership and hospitals, you will achieve much more,” she said.
She called on all community health workers to invest much effort in promoting healthcare programmes in the country.
