On 23rd March 2023, in commemoration of the 3rd year of the late King Maroy's passing, Maroy Foundation launched the King Maroy Bursaries Fund at Homerton College.

The Foundation pledged £50,000 to support undergraduate students from refugee, carer, asylum seeker, migrant and other underrepresented backgrounds with their studies at Cambridge.

This marks an expansion for the Foundation as the first step in our long-term partnership with Homerton specifically and in beginning to support tertiary education projects across Europe over the next 5 years generally.

This is in addition to the Foundation's enhanced support for the 2023/24 academic year to 75 young people (4th cohort of Scholars) in secondary education across South Kivu in the DRC.

Maroy Foundation has partnered with British charity EMR4DW to install a sophisticated electronic medical records system at Maroy Foundation Hospital.

The system can measure disease prevalence and location which will allow our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Bob Ossomba, to collect and analyse data at a larger scale. This will significantly improve the care of the individual and allow our doctors and nurses to better target healthcare resources in the wider community.

The Electronic Medical Records (EMR) System will facilitate:

  • Quick access to patient records

  • Increased treatment effectiveness

  • Recommendation of potential treatment options

  • Patient portals allowing patients access to their medical details

  • Enabling easier patient-physician communication

  • Improving preventive care

Saturday 10th August 2019, at least 15 people died in a motorised pirogue shipwreck in Bukavu on Lake Kivu from the island of Idjwi to Bukavu. The vessel was dangerously overloaded and hit a rock. Similar incidents have been dealt with by Maroy Foundation Hospital. Remaining survivors made it on shore at Port Akonkwa.

65 were taken in by Maroy Foundation Hospital, 10 by Hôpital Provincial Général de Référence de Bukavu, and 22 to la Clinique Médicale de Bukavu of Université officielle de Bukavu. Maroy Foundation Hospital managed to save the lives of all injured and mentally shocked patients and provide them with vital medical care.

His Excellency Govenor Théo Ngwabidje Kasi and The Honourable Claude Sweddy Basila, Minister for Transportation, visited Maroy Foundation Hospital and commended the work, compassion, and patriotism of the Foundation and our doctors and nurses who worked tirelessly to make sure survivors were cared for. The Minister for Transportation said “without the work of Maroy Foundation, more lives would have been lost.”

The Governor paid his respects to the fallen, took various questions from the victims, offered his sincere condolences to the survivors of the accident, and vowed to implement new and wide-ranging legislative measures to prevent such an incident occurring again.
