A local non-government organization has launched construction activities of the very first industrial kitchen in the country that will supply over 15,000 free nutritious meals to patients in six referral hospitals within Kigali city.

The two-phase construction project located in Rusororo sector – Gasabo district was sponsored by Imbuto Foundation, an organization which is championed by the First Lady Jeannette Kagame, in partnership with Morocco’s King Mohammed VI Foundation for Sustainable Development.

The first phase worth $300,000 will have a fully-fledged state of the art kitchen, food preparation and delivery areas, changing rooms, toilets and bathrooms.

A restaurant will also be constructed in the second phase whose total cost is yet to be determined.

The kitchen is expected to start operations of preparing balanced diet for 1000 patients a day by end of year. The kitchen is dubbed ‘Mike Stenbock (MS) Gemura Kitchen’.

Beneficiaries are patients from Kigali University Teaching Hospital (CHUK), Kibagabaga, Muhima, Masaka, Kacyiru and Kanombe Military hospital.

Project operations of reaching out for patients with three meals a day will be run by Solid Africa-Rwanda, an initiative that was founded by motivated Rwandan youths eight years ago who started with an idea of supporting patients

“This kitchen was named after Mike Stenbock one of the volunteers who was behind this idea of starting a kitchen for preparing food for patients but sadly passed away in 2011,” said Isabelle Kamariza, founder of Solid Africa.
