Rwandan Religious Groups Call for More Funding to Combat HIV, TB, Malaria

June 30, 2009

Religious groups that work to combat HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria in Rwanda have called on the government and donors to give them more funding for their efforts to fight these diseases, the New Times/allAfrica.com reports. "Faith based organization[s] have a very significant role in fighting any pandemic, when malaria comes, it does not choose any specific denomination, it can kill each one of us," Emmanuel Kolini, head of the Anglican Church of Rwanda, said recently at a one-day conference, called, "Counting out Malaria in Rwanda; the role of faith based organisations" (Mutara, 6/26).
