About the Project
Jessie’s Place is a USA-registered charity founded by Jessica Lee McCall. The charity looks to care for the physically and mentally challenged who come to the Ubumwe Community Centre while also supporting and providing assistance for children and adults facing extreme challenges in Rwanda. A Better World constructed a physiotherapy clinic located in Gisenyi Town.
Each adult and child participating in the programs is treated with unconditional love, provided with a high level of dignity, and engaged with respect. Every child, adult, and family member has access to education, good nutrition, and exercise of body, mind and spirit. The clinic also equips parents with skills to assist their challenged family member in achieving self-reliance.
