The UMH Headquarters in Rwanda Chair has organized a talk on preventing infectious diseases in Rwanda directed at the participants in the UMH volunteer program in that country. The objective of this meeting was to remind the university community members who are traveling this year to the African country about the preventive measures they need to take to ensure their health.

The session was presented by two specialists, Félix Gutiérrez, Head of the Service of Internal Medicine in the Area of Infectious Diseases and International Health, and by Rafael Pascual, a nurse at the International Vaccination Center and responsible for providing advice to the travelers.

This chat complemented the information that has been provided to the interested and selected parties in a more specialized and specific manner since the call for volunteers was announced on the preventive measures and courses of action to take before, during, and subsequent to their stay in Rwanda.

NEMBA SCHOOL LUNCHROOM BEGINS SERVING


The lunchroom at the Nemba schools in Rwanda, which was built by the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH) through the UMH Headquarters in Rwanda Chair and the Vice Rectorate for International Relations, will begin serving meals today. The facility was officially inaugurated this morning by the Bishop of the Diocese of Ruhengeri, Vincent Harolimana, and various Rwandan authorities. Director of the UMH Headquarters in Rwanda Chair, Mariano Pérez Arroyo, attended the ceremony in person, and UMH Rector, Jesús Pastor Ciurana, participated via video conference.

The ceremony began with an exchange of thoughts by the UMH Rector, the director of the UMH Headquarters in Rwanda Chair, and the Ruhengeri Bishop, with the latter two using for the occasion the Teleconference Room in Nemba that was recently built by the UMH. During the ceremony, the Rector congratulated the local authorities for their efforts and acknowledged the pride that the cooperation project in Rwanda brings to the UMH, which so far has resulted in various actions and investment, the most recent being the construction of the Nemba kitchens and lunchroom.

This facility, which has a capacity for 600 children, is part of a plan of action implemented by the Rwanda Ministry of Education, which intends for all Rwandan school children to eat at their very schools. As of today, the Nemba kitchen and lunchroom will permit boy and girl students enrolled at this school, regardless of their age or socioeconomic level, to receive a meal there every day.

In addition to the construction of this facility, lunchroom grants are also being issued, a product of conversations that the UMH maintained with the relevant authorities, and that materialized through an agreement to subsidize meals with assistance by Rwandan parent associations and contributions from the district and the UMH.
