As of today, water is flowing again in the management of the mission hospital in Adi, Dem. Rep. Congo. The diesel engine that drives the centrifugal pump was defective. Therefore we brought original spare parts from Germany in a suitcase to Uganda and Congo.
All in all it was a suitcase full of spare parts and a lot of tools needed for the repair. After some initial difficulties everything worked and after one week of work, water flowed out of the pipe again. The hospital staff is very happy that they now have water on the premises again and do not have to fetch it in canisters.
