EAST AFRICA

Welcome

Presentation of the section

The IMS East Africa Section is one of the last to be created, following a need of the bishops and superiors of the region for health coverage for their members. In 2007, the mission of IMS was therefore entrusted to the Kenya Bishops’ Conference (KCCB). Soon, the dioceses of Kenya as well as many religious institutes joined the Association.

 

Priests and religious men and women from all the countries of the region are represented in this outreach section, notably Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Burundi, Mozambique, i.e. nearly 7000 beneficiary members.

After the important development work of the Section leaders during the years 2010, the Marist Brothers’ Province of the Africa Central East took over the administration of the IMS management on the 1st December 2020. They thus continue the very numerous interventions of IMS in the region. They also maintain a regular link with the IMS Groups. Finally, the Brothers also take on the mission of developing IMS in countries where the need for health assistance still exists.
