Lenten greetings from the Rev. Audace Kwizera, diocesan secretary, on behalf of Buyé diocese, were received March 5th by the Rev. John Gee, synod secretary-treasurer, Edmonton diocese. In his email message, Kwizera also shared that the Buyé Mother's Union has begun distributing cards providing access to medical care coverage otherwise out of reach for seniors and children.
Last fall, parishes and the Edmonton diocese raised nearly $5,400 through $5 donations for medical cards for people in Buyé diocese.
Kwizera shared pictures of the medical cards being distributed by Clotilde Muhimpunda, president of the Buyé Mother's Union, to the people of Ruyenzi Archdeaconry, in December 2020. Plans are underway to continue distributing the cards in Kigufi Archdeaconry.
