Our Compassion DTS outreach team to Rwanda will have the opportunity to help bring awareness to an injustice where young hospital patients are held until their bill is paid in full. After treatment is completed the child is not released until family or friends guarantee full payment. This practice is common is certain African nations. In many cases it involves less than a few hundred dollars, but due to extreme poverty families are unable to come up with the needed funds.
We are planning a documentary film about “hospital prisoners” stuck in a type of debtors bondage. We intend to use this film to rally support to help free them and to fight this kind of injustice, which is seen as normal in hospitals in Burundi. This project is slower than expected because it is very sensitive and the government doesn’t want this to be exposed. We have been told this from a friend from Burundi who is trying to facilitate this project. Please pray for God’s guidance as we work on this documentary, since there is a lot of corruption in this nation.
We need your prayers so that the door will be open in a right way. That this will be done in a safe and fruitful way. We welcome you to join us in support of these prisoners, who are not released until their hospital bills are paid. We paid to secure the release of two children, and we hope more people will contribute to help pay the hospital debt of others. Pray also that the government will find a solution for the hospital prisoners dilemma.
$50 to $200 can set one child free from Hospital debt bondage. Thank you for your contribution. 100% of your donation will go to free children. Tax deductible donations via YWAM University of the Nations, Kona.
Compassion Transformation Center is a vision God has given Gabriel and Margret Dusabe to start in their country of Rwanda where there is much salvation but a lack of transformation within individuals and their walk with God. This center will fight poverty by training people, teaching them skills, and creating jobs. It will also disciple them by teaching them the Word of God so they are equipped to walk in integrity, faithfulness and honesty. The trainees will learn their call to missions that Gabriel and Margret believe God has set forth for all the nation of Rwanda. The Dusabes believe God has plans for Rwanda to be a light in the continent of Africa and the rest of the world. They believe God desires to call forth a new generation of Rwandan missionaries into the world as a blessing to others. God is already rising up a generation hungry and thirsty for Him. Compassion Transformation Center wants to fish them out for God.
This center will be a place to encourage Rwandan to dream, birth their own dreams, and being their dreams to life. Compassion Transformation Center will also hold conferences of different spheres: education, church leaders, government, business people, youth and adult. The ultimate goal is to teach the people of Rwanda, to disciple them as Christ Followers, and to change their worldviews about God and his creation.
