What’s with the name?

What’s Ubuzima?

It’s the Rwandan word for “health.” We chose the team name Mercy 4 Ubuzima because:

  1. We’re Mercy.
  2. The number 4 is consistent throughout our trip – 4 teams, 4 people per team, 4 hospitals – and because we’re going for health.
  3. We want to speak in the language of the people we’re visiting. We don’t think we have all the answers, and we’re excited about what we’re going to learn from the people of Rwanda.Image
