2016 Organization of the Year: Kibuye Hope Hospital

“Kibuye Hospital deepens healing because its doctors also study the Great Physician.”

For the 2016 M3 Conference, we donated a portion of every registration to Kibuye Hope Hospital in Burundi, where doctors navigated navigate shortages in electricity, water, sanitation, equipment, workers, beds, and medicines, and figured out a way to supply the community in that region with healthcare.
