Elderly couple find hope

sampson03

Mzee Samson is 69 years old. He is seen here with his wife. All their children died in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. In their culture, it is normally the children who look after elderly parents in their old age. So life is difficult.

Mzee has a long term back problem but could never afford medical treatment. They couldn’t even afford the £3 per person per year medical insurance from the government.

They were both amazed and overjoyed to receive the gift of annual medical insurance from RSVP Trust. You can see it on their faces.

Now Mzee can get the medical care he needs.

Total cost of these smiles? £6.
