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.

Reminder of the day care center project:
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.
