The construction of a Hospital University in joint venture with the Goverment is being studied in order to bring also the latest information regarding Tele Medecine in a country that will be able to assit neighbour country's in need. The Hospital is foreseen for 300 patients whilst the University will be for 1700 students. It is planned to also have Professors that will be from different parts of the world .
The Ecumenical Order has further agreed with the Ministry of Public Health to sponsor 1500 patients throught the Local Public Health scheme for at least a period of three years possibility to bring the number up to 5000.
The Ecumenical Order has further agreed to sponsor the main Orphanage at Bujumbura and have already agreed to purchase a van , washing machines, cows for fresh milk, clothing and schoolraships for the tiution of the elderly children and a generator.
