As a reason of this year’s worldwide economic crisis and the depressive athmosphere we were not able to organise a charity event for 2009. We are looking forward to a better 2010 and a continuation
of our charity event series. Still the hospital is running normally as the daily business is warranted through clever planning and optimal use of financial ressources.
The project is still being controlled in and from Berlin.
Everybody knows of problems that can occur when you’re shipping aid goods around the world but until something happens to yourself you don’t know how hard it can get. It took us 18 hours in Dakar with more than 8 official spots at the airport and in the city we had to go to including waiting time, skirmish and legal formalities to have customs inspect our goods. After hours of sweating and anxious waiting our goods finally went through and could be sent to the hospital. Thank you Mr. Issa Konaté who helped us through red-tape operations.
After 5 months of planning and 3 weeks of construction work renovation work in Warand has been completed. Reliable electricity has been ensured, small defects have been repaired, roofs been sealed and the whole hospital been painted inside as well as outside. Thank you very much to the local team, above all Schraddi, Sven and Morsch, who have been giving their eyeteeth.
