Kibogora Hospital has been accredited by the College of Surgeons, East, Central, and Southern Africa.  This authorises the hospital to accept residents and fellows in their 1st to 3rd years of their residency programs and to train them during their clinical rotations at Kibogora.

 

This is an acknowledgement from the Rwandan government, Rwandan Universities, and the College of Surgeons that Kibogora Hospital provides surgical services of such a quality that doctors can be trained in surgery at Kibogora.  This will be of considerable benefit to patients at the hospital as it will provide a greater number of surgeons to help with the workload.

 

There have been times when there have been no expatriate surgeons at the hospital leaving Dr Ronald as the only surgeon available. Now with the help of the 3rd year residents who, with supervision, can work independently, the level of patient care will be enhanced.

 

Currently the shortage of approved places for surgical training within Rwanda is limited, resulting in some students having to go to neighboring countries for training. With the approval of Kibogora Hospital as a center for surgical training the need to go outside of Rwanda will be reduced. This will lower the cost for the students and because Kibogora Hospital undertakes such a high number of surgeries it offers the students a more diverse and intensive training.

 

When the students have completed their residencies, it is hoped that some of the newly graduated surgeons will return to Kibogora to work as part their contract with the government.

HISTORY

Kibogora Hospital has a rich history spanning over half a century watch our short video below to find out more.

In 1942 Mr. Haley succeeded in obtaining a site from the government near the southern tip of Lake Kivu to establish the first Free Methodist mission station in what would become Rwanda. The site was known as Kibogora. By 1945, an orphanage, school and dispensary had been established. Two qualified nurses were working in the mission dispensary treating more than 200 patients per day, 95 students were in the school, and 27 school chapels had been opened in outlying areas.

 

There is no longer a large expatriate staff at the hospital, the management now being in the hands of Rwandan doctors. Medical assistance is provided by visiting specialists from overseas. Their stay may be for a month or a year, depending on the need and availability of the specialists. Julie Yerger is now the only  medical missionary living permanently at Kibogora..

 

In the 70 or so years the mission has been at Kibogora, the needs of the population have changed but not decreased. Poverty, malaria, AIDS and other debilitating diseases have a devastating effect on many lives. The need for additional funds to treat patients is never ending; the limited medical resources mean that many die who could be cured. The work started in 1942 goes on.

The average bed occupancy was 158% during 2018, meaning that there were 2 women forced to share a single bed before and after the delivery of their child. The current wards were built in the 1970’s and there now are 50% more beds per ward than they were designed for resulting in serious overcrowding.

ABOUT US

Action Kibogora was formed to support the redevelopment of the Maternity and Neonatology wards at Kibogora Hospital. All funds donated to Action Kibogora will go towards this project with no deductions for administration or management. The charity is run by volunteers who have a passion to see this unacceptable situation at Kibogora rectified.

  •   +      Maternity in Crisis

    The ever growing demand for Maternity services has stretched existing resources to breaking point and the Maternity and Neonatology services are in crisis. The average bed occupancy was 158% during 2018, meaning that there were 2 women forced to share a single bed before and after the delivery of their child. The current wards were built in the 1970’s and there now are 50% more beds per ward than they were designed for resulting in serious overcrowding.

  •   +      Our Vision  & Mission

    Action Kibogora has had designs prepared for a new Maternity ward and neonatology unit which will increase the number of maternity beds for 37 to 90 and provide 39 neonatology beds plus an additional operating theatre.

     

    The new facilities will include inside flush toilets and showers with multiple hand washing points throughout the wards.

     

    These new wards will greatly improve the quality of care for both mothers and babies and will provide an environment in which trainee midwifes can be mentored.

     

    The cost of providing these new wards is estimated at £1.3million (US$1.7million) the construction will be done in two phases.

     

    1. Site/ground preparation and retaining walls £514,000 (US$687,000)

     

    2. Building Construction £787,000 (US$1,050,000)

     

    We are urgently seeking donations for this work therefore if you would care to donate please go to the “Donate” page, we welcome all donations large or small.
