    Protecting our patients at the counseling center

    Day 238

    Safety is Key

    Today we’re back at Kigeme Refugee Camp in Rwanda to follow up on the counseling center we kicked off a few weeks ago!

    As you may remember, the center was a little worse for wear.

    But we’re making the necessary changes to ensure those we serve are safe and secure.

    One of the things our counseling space was missing was a fence. A fence is important for safety – as well as privacy.

    Gardening is used as a therapeutic activity for some of the clients during their stay. Having a fence makes it all that easier to garden, keeping the produce from walking off.

    The fence was printed a vibrant red to go along with the new redesign!

    Now our clients can rest inside safe and sound – they can focus on healing and recovery.
