Burundi is called “The Heart of Africa” and is located between Kenya and Rwanda.
The Hearts Without Borders clinic project will be located in Ngozi. It will serve a population near the Rwanda border of approximately one million people, and be a resource to these five surrounding provinces who have suffered greatly from ten years of genocidal war.

The President of Burundi, His Excellence Peter Nkurunziza, has personally met with Jeri Matson, founder of Hearts Without Borders. Upon learning about the medical clinic project, the President positively appreciated the initiative, giving it his full support.
President Leopold Banzubaze (President of Foursquare Burundi) is the national leader of the clinic project. He has procured the land, construction architects and qualified medical staff for the clinic.
