New Desks and Chairs for the Thugunui School

Education is as important for the future as medical care. With the cooperation of Schweizer Hilfswerk Kids to Kids the Rhein-Valley Hospital was able to furnish the elementary school in Thugunui.

The students in the poverty ridden farm community Thugunui were able to regularly visit class, but the school furniture consisted until recently of self-made wooden benches

In order to determine an appropriate setup for the classrooms, Rhein-Valley Hospital found a partner in Hilfswerk Kids to Kids. The charity, initiated by Heinz Heer, organized roughly 100 desks and 200 chairs. Kids for kids: Swiss kids collect in order to help kids living in poverty.

When the container with the new school furniture arrived in Thugunui young and old from all over the region gathered to witness this rare event. After everyone gave a helping hand to transport the furniture, the village spontaneously celebrated with joy.
