On the 2nd day to the end of army week, the Military Medical experts working in Rusizi and Nyamasheke Districts have been praised, following great contributions to the health of the society; it has been noted
The number of patients in Gihundwe Hospital where the actions of treating people are being done is much and some have spent there at least 2 days waiting to be treated but this number does not discourage them as it increases them on daily basis.
Samuel Magerano an old man who had spent 5 years blind due to an eye infection said that he had gone to many hospitals but now he was healed and he sees very well and he say it is miraculously.
Apart from Samuel Magerano, there is another man called Vincent Mugarura who had an eye infection for 1 year and 3 months which had caused him blindness but now he can see very well after being treated by soldiers’ doctors.
It is not only eyes that are treated but all diseases are being treated and people are hopeful and patients who haven’t got a chance to meet with doctors are getting worried because of their big number that is still growing and only two days to the end of this program.
Colonel Dr Ben Karenzi the director of Kanombe Military Hospital said that this big number shows that in Rusizi district there are a large number of people with health problems.
He said that they will add one day to the week they had planned to work there and those who will not be attended on will be brought to Kanombe Military hospital to be treated on the support of district administration.
Oscar Nzeyimana the mayor of Rusizi district asked people with usual health problems to go to their custom doctors on health centers and local hospitals so as to reduce on the number of the patients waiting to be treated the army week by soldiers’ doctors.
