Amanda Tallon  Coleman, AB
Our aim is to equip and empower the poorest and most vulnerable in the Mutara region of Rwanda. We will do this through healthcare, training, aid and business projects built on biblical principles. This will enable people to see and create a better future for themselves, their family and community. 

The Healthcare Centre has a holistic approach: meeting people's physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs. The goal is to offer an affordable service to the local community with only limited aid. 
We also have a focus on preventative healthcare, education and counselling to meet the needs of the community.

The Centre will be working with natural medicinal principles, based on the work of Anamed, or ‘Action For Natural Medicine’. These principles combine the advantages of traditional herbal medicines with those of scientifically based modern medical practice. The Centre will cultivate specific medical plants (Atrimesia annua anamed, Moringa oleifera, Aloe Vera, Carica papaya, etc.) and produce remedies and treatments from these plants.

We will also be building a Multipurpose Hall, which includes office space and a large hall for community meetings and training seminars.

We have begun building the Healthcare Centre, and have currently raised enough funds to complete the walls, roof and half the windows. We are raising funds to complete the inside of the Healthcare Centre (plumbing, floors, electricty, etc, as well as raising funds to start building the Multipurpose Hall.
