This has been revealed by the Director-General of CHUB, Dr. Augustin Sendegeya during a Corporate Social Responsibility activity in which the hospital donated cows to 10 vulnerable families of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Mukura sector of Huye district.
“We have so far donated 138 cows including today’s donations in different sectors of Huye,” said Dr. Sendegeya.
He explained that the CSR is organized annually and will be extended to other districts after serving all sectors of Huye.
Dr. Sendegeya commended medics for their commitment to support genocide survivors.
“As employees of the hospital, we have committed to donating 2% of our salary every year to support genocide survivors,” he said.
