In addition to engaging with socio-environmental sectors in Rwanda, FuelGroup also seeks to invest in the health and wellbeing of Rwandans, understanding the latter as an essential ingredient of a thriving society. FuelGroup is partnering with the Ministry of Health, the Imbuto Foundation and the Institute of Applied Sciences Ruhengeri (INES – Ruhengeri) to implement the multi-tiered Innovative Medical Infrastructure in Rwanda (IMIR) project. This five-year endeavor aims at modernizing the medical infrastructure in Rwanda and building mentorship and capacity building between Rwandan and European medical academics and professionals. Over the course of five days, the delegation met with the Honorable Minister of Health, Dr. Ngamije Daniel, the Director General of the Imbuto Foundation, Ms Sandrine Umutoni, and the Vice Chancellor of the INES – Ruhengeri to further discuss IMIR.
