Icyizere Lodge Project

One of the issues discovered through research is the need for patients who are locals to access oncology care. To counter challenges such as uneven geographic distribution of the workforce, including multidisciplinary care needs, travel distance and cost, and financial burdens and health insurance, improve treatment compliance and survival.

Rwanda Cancer Relief (RCR) is setting up a transitional lodge at Kanombe near RCC to host patients from different parts of the country for radiation treatment. This initiative will relieve cancer patients from paying extra stay fees or missing appointments due to a lack of a place to stay in Kigali during their treatment and post-treatment phases.

It will also improve the well-being of these patients, as RCR-Icyizere House will have a counselor visiting, and different activities will be carried out to enhance their emotional and mental well-being.
