Here is a summary of the activities 2018:
The day care center finally got a power connection. In addition, railings and handrails were attached.
We were especially pleased that we were able to drill a well for the facility with the support of Engagement Global and install a tank. We are now independent from the unreliable water supply.
Es konnten weitere Einrichtungsgegenstände angeschafft werden, bzw wurden gespendet, wie Stühle, Pflegebett, Spiele und Fernseher.
Furthermore, there were more wheelchairs and nursing aids to distribute. This also benefited disabled young people.
And there is now a nurse and three helpers who regularly check vital functions. That meets with great interest.
Meanwhile, the first 3 rooms (rest rooms, stay / meeting facilities) are completed. The next step is now the toilet facility. This could then start with the first small events of operation. To achieve this, we need more donations. Therefore, at this point, the request for support. Any donation is welcome.
In addition, this year we were able to distribute plenty of wheelchairs and rollers to needy old people, which we had stored the last time. We were confronted with moving fates. Many suffer from loneliness or being neglected by imobility.
Here are the latest picture from the construction place:
Help old people in Africa - we will tell you how this is possible
At this point we would like to express our sincerely gratitute to those who supported us in the past 2 months so actively and generously in our actions. From games evening, benefit concert to our Ghanaian snack at the International Begegnungsfest it was an exhausting, but also beautiful time. Our goal, we are thus again a good deal closer. Currently we are waiting for the most accurate quote for the roof of the day care center. In the meantime, it was possible again to send a whole lot of care tools to our partners including 7 hospital beds and wheelchairs and diverse. More material is still waiting in the warehouse on its consignment. Furthermore, we were able to make contact to two persons / organizations, who are committed to the care of the elderly in Africa, more specifically Uganda. These are firstly the Help for old people in Uganda, as well as the Nyumba ya Wazee seniors home, which is managed from Belgium. We are excited about this growth.
