A Healthy Moms for Healthy Kids centre project accomplished last month (August). The building contain with a health training area, a maternity, with toilets that are accessible to and suitable for use by people with disabilities, particularly wheelchair users, at Kinama Zone, Bujumbura, Burundi.
During this work, we had some problems related the bank account’s transaction and unprecedented exchange rate, the building materials and equipment’ prices increased due to the exchange rate as mentioned above. However these unplanned changes did not prevent us to finish this project.
