Micheline Mwajuma, a 40-year-old mother of eight from Mushasha II hill in Gatumba, shares her experiences before and after the establishment of Sacodé's Health Center. As a member of the Tumarane Irungu VSLA, Micheline had previously relied on the local public Health Center for medical care.



You had to arrive early to secure a spot on the patient list. The public Center lacked sufficient equipment and rarely offered laboratory tests. Without the means to afford private healthcare, accessing quality care was a struggle.

The situation reached a critical point when one of her children became seriously ill, forcing Micheline to sell her goat to fund hospital treatment in Bujumbura. The arrival of Sacodé's Health Center in Gatumba brought significant relief.

Sacodé's Center offers medical services, lab tests, and even medications at lower costs than other pharmacies. The nurses are not only welcoming but also ensure prompt attention, especially in urgent cases. They even skip their lunch breaks until every patient is seen! I'm truly thankful to Maman Sacodé for establishing this Center here; it has improved our access to quality healthcare tremendously!

She also advocates for the expansion of the Center to include additional services like inpatient care and maternity facilities, highlighting the financial and logistical challenges of being referred to distant hospitals for treatment.

Expanding services would reduce costs and provide comprehensive, quality care right in our community.
