We support Burundian refugees at Mahama Refugee Camp, through teaching English language and technology and by providing material educational supplies. We also funded and ran a free eye care clinic for over 700 refugees in 2017 and 2018, providing comprehensive eye exams, prescriptions for cataract surgery and other eye care illnesses, as well as giving out hundreds of pairs of prescription eyeglasses.
Violence in Burundi began in April 2015, and since then, over 400,000 Burundians have fled their country. Mahama Refugee Camp is the largest refugee camp in Rwanda, and our support for these refugees began after Anne's first trip to Mahama in Sept 2015.
By offering our financial support and professional guidance, we can directly improve the lives of bright, young refugees who are studying and working towards a better future. Tee Shirt uniforms, solar light hats, dictionaries, smart phones, and other support directly helps these students not lose hope while living the struggling life as a refugee. Our eye care clinic was run during our 2017 and 2018 onsite visits. During those clinics, we provided over 700 refugees at Mahama with comprehensive vision exams, prescriptions for cataract surgery, and provided hundreds of free prescription eyeglasses.
Mahama Group gives you the best return for your charitable dollar because our programs are self-funded and already in place. Every contribution amplifies the impact of our teaching and eye care program for refugees at Mahama.
Your generous gift will help us fund our mission to help refugees in need. Together, we can make a difference.
