Health Program

The NGD Health Program.
This is a community-focused health care program by the Humanitarian Department of NGD Foundation that strives to find solutions to health coverage difficulties in rural communities of Burundi for youths by coming in assistance to those who find themselves in difficult situations to access health care.

Short Term Operations.
For short term solutions, we provide medical bills payment support to needy youths and elderly people from time to time as per need and humanitarian food support through visits to local medical centres to provide assistance to poor people who find themselves in hunger situations.

Long Term Operations.
For long term solutions to health care access difficulties, we have launched a project to work with elders and youths, mostly from low-income families, so as to provide them with Health Coverage of "Carte Assurance Maladie" Program, a Burundi Government Medical Coverage Plan, that will enable them to get medical care access in public medical facilities at a discount of 80% off to medical bills.

Current Project:
The project "Live Healthy Live Well" is a free medical insurance coverage that was designed for elders and youths in particular and NGD Sports Department's Academies participating youth girls and boys in general so as to provide to them with medical care access and hence contribute in building healthy and prosperous communities.

Our Mission.
We try to utilise creativity and enterprise in our efforts to break the cycle of health care access problems in rural areas.
