Join the 1000 Hills Circle to transform Rwanda through HOPE Dental Center and extend God’s hope, healing and blessing to His people.
Rwanda is known as a country of a thousand hills because of the natural beauty of its landscape made of many rolling hills. Even though the country suffered unimaginable adversity in its recent history, it has made stunning progress. Life expectancy has doubled since 1994 to over 60 years, and deaths of children under age 5 have plummeted from 230 per 1,000 to 55.
However, despite these advancements, 18% of hospital visits in district hospitals are linked to oral diseases that are preventable and curable with access to basic dental care. Rwanda has 48 dentists in a country with a population of almost 12 million, approximately one dentist for every 250,000 patients. By comparison, the United States has 1 dentist per 1,600 patients. Despite major efforts to rebuild the nation, the statistics remain disheartening and the need for more dental care professionals is greater than ever.
It is our love for this beautiful country and the resilient people of Rwanda that has inspired His Hands on Africa to establish the Thousand Hills Circle, named after Rwanda’s striking landscape made of many rolling hills. We hope to gather one thousand partners, the ‘circle’, who will journey, pray, and financially commit with us for the next 3 years. As a partner, we would appreciate your support in three key ways:
- Become a prayer partner of His Hands on Africa
- Commit to a monthly donation for the next three years
- Create a 1000 Hills circle - engage with your communities and host an informational gathering to engage, dialogue and discuss the medical needs of the people of Rwanda
Your partnership will serve as the foundation of His Hands of Africa as we build the HOPE Dental Center in Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda. The HOPE Dental Center will serve as the hub for all of our mission work in Rwanda - a place to provide dental treatment, advanced education training to Rwandan dentists, discipleship, and community outreach, while employing locals from the city of Kigali.
“...if you have faith as small as a mustard seed,
you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move.
Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Join the 1000 Hills Circle and let us move and transform the land of 1000 hills together!
