ONE HUNDRED DAYS
IT BEGAN WITH A CONVERSATION: Well it actually goes back farther than that, but for then Emory physician Scott Sasser, the founder of One Hundred Days, it began with a conversation. In 2003 a Rwandan pastor named Simon Nziramkenga was visiting the United States and met with Scott. Simon is the head pastor of a church located in Kigali, Rwanda committed to meeting the needs of the local community. He felt that one of the greatest unmet needs in his community was access to quality healthcare. Simon was connected to Scott through a long-time family relationship and approached him with the idea to build a hospital. Out of that conversation One Hundred Days was founded by Scott, his wife Kelli and a group of friends and neighbors in Atlanta. Although completing the hospital remains our primary focus, the mission of the organization is to build restoration in Rwanda. We desire to connect with local leaders who will work to bring about physical, spiritual and emotional healing in their communities.
