Garth Brooks Helps Rwanda

Garth Brooks’ Teammates for Kids Foundation has awarded a half-million dollar grant to Rwanda Works, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving health care in that country.

The grant will pay for the construction of a new health center in Rwanda’s Bugesera District, where children in particular are susceptible to a variety of life-threatening diseases. “The Foundation has always been focused on giving back in order to improve the lives of children worldwide,” says Teammates for Kids Foundation president Don Johnson. “The Ngeruka Health Center will allow thousands of children access to life-saving health care that was previously unavailable to them.” The center is set to open in early 2010 and provide services for 27,000 local residents.
