Rwanda Staff


Christelle Dufitumukiza

Community Health Coordinator

Christelle was born and raised in Rwanda. She has three siblings from the second compassionate and brave mother that God has directed in her life to be a role model and teacher. When she was three years old, she lost her biological mother and was raised by her loving grandparents, father, and adopted mother who did all the best they had to raise her well as a Christian child and gave all they had to give her the best education. She is always and forever grateful to God and her grandparents specifically who have been there every time she needed them. From the loving parents she learned from, she grew up with thoughts of helping others who were needy and doing the best to be a blessing in other people’s lives. Her vision and aspirations were to be a healthcare provider because since childhood she always felt other people’s physical pain which she wanted desperately to heal and share.

She has a Bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Management with a concentration in Global Perspective from Southern New Hampshire University partnering with Kepler in Kigali, Rwanda.

At the start of 2019 as she was praying for job opportunities since she was in her last semester of school God directed her to the website of Word Made Flesh Rwanda which had the information that matched her dreams and future career goals. She joined Word Made Flesh Rwanda in July as a volunteer, and applied to be a part of September Servant Team which she did for three months. And finally, she is so grateful to God that December 2019 had turned her dreams come true. She is now working and serving as a Community Health Coordinator in Word Made Flesh, Rwanda full time.
