“Building Community Services - Health and Education from the grassroots in Rwanda” with Chris Anderson

Chris Anderson first went to Africa in his early twenties as a Bahá'í pioneer, and he and his family have been serving in development initiatives in various countries for more than 25 years. They created the Anderson Association in Rwanda, an incorporated not for profit humanitarian organization working on projects in health, education and moral leadership. The Joan Anderson Memorial Dispensary in Gatenga offers medical services to more than 5,000 patients a year. The organization has also opened a public library free of charge to all in temporary space beside the dispensary while the permanent library building is under construction. Plans are also underway to build a school that will serve up to ??? children and youth.
