The staff and management of Kigali Bus Services (KBS) have joined residents of the Gashora sector, Bugesera district in the monthly community work and donated a cheque worth Rwf 300,000 to sector officials for a subscription of Mutuelle de Santé for 100 residents.

The community work conducted on Saturday in the area was characterized by clearing bushes along roads in the village of survivors of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.

After the community work, KBS Ltd donated a cheque to subscribe to Mutuelle de Santé for100 vulnerable residents in the second Ubudehe category.

The Managing Director of KBS Ltd, Emmanuel Habanabakize said the gesture is part of ongoing initiatives to contribute to national development.

“This means Rwandans especially KBS staff have to raise funds internally to vulnerable residents to walk together along the journey towards rebuilding the nation and achieving self-reliance,” he said.

The Director of Good Governance in Bugesera district, Sebatware Magellan thanked KBS Ltd the gesture reflecting the willingness to strive for common progress, dignified life and resilient nation.

“These are brothers who joined us for community work and subscribed 100 residents for Mutuelle de Santé. We warmly welcomed the great support. These are among homegrown solutions inducing self-dignity aligning with the vision of the President of the Republic where Rwandans need to build their nation themselves. We appreciated their kind act traveling from Kigali to bringing the support,” he said.

Figures from the Gashora sector reveal that only 56% of residents including supported locals from the first Ubudehe category have already paid Mutuelle de Santé.

Beneficiaries told IGIHE that KBS Ltd said the support will boost wellbeing as they can afford medical care whenever.

Beatrice Bamurange, a mother of five from Kagasa II village, Ramiro sector of the Gashora sector was hit hard and would not access health care because she had no medical insurance subscription. With the support, she said, no family member critically sick will stay at home over inadequate means.
