Center for Vein Rostoration, Center for Vascular Medicine, and medi have worked together to provide help through compression therapy for patients suffering from superficial and deep vein diseases. With the launch of Project Heart & Sole, we are extending our partnership and shared vision of helping patients beyond our clinic walls. Together, we can increase our impact and bring new hope to those who need it most.

Heart and Sole Africa (HASA) is a non-profit organization fighting against podoconiosis in Rwanda since 2009. This chronic tropical disease is increasingly triggered by high concentrations of silica in the soil - especially in people who are exposed to the silicates while barefoot for long periods of time. At more than eleven locations throughout the country, it provides support with education and hygiene equipment to combat and prevent the chronic disease.

medi for help has been working in partnership with Heart and Sole Africa since 2022. The common goal is to gain trust locally and to adequately educate young people and sufferers and their families about podoconiosis. medi for help is systematically establishing a comprehensive compression management system in Rwanda. This includes the appointment of a compression manager and the expansion of a shoe workshop including training for technical specialists on site.
