Latest News: Construction of a casualty/ emergency room 103

Update January 2019
A few days ago 2 containers with relief supplies were unloaded at the Kibosho Hospital. A substantial part of the delivery is medical equipment for the hospital. This is one reason to complete the last remaining work on the new emergency room. With this goal the experienced AKO members Adolf Rudolf and Rolf Bührend as well as our new member Willi Brugner travelled to Kibosho at the beginning of January. They will stay there for 6 weeks.
Essential tasks in these 6 weeks are:
– The construction of a bridge for barrier-free access to the second floor of the building.
– the closure of the courtyard and access road to the emergency room with a roller shutter manufactured on site
– the construction of a canopy at the entrance to the emergency room, so that when it rains, emergency patients can be kept dry while they are being transported from the ambulance into the building
– the construction of a driveway to provide access between the ground floor, first floor and second floor of the new building

Update January 2018
Rudolph Adolf and Horst Sieber have continued their work in Kibosho.

Update October 2017
On 24.10.2017 the first expansion stage of the newly constructed oxygen supply system for the currently existing operating theatres, as well as the donations for the patients from the Traunstein Clinic and Teleflex were handed over to Dr. Materu, the head of the hospital, Dr. Mtschome, Dr. Shio, the anaesthetist, as well as numerous other interested doctors and employees in an official ceremony.
The 2nd expansion stage of the oxygen supply system is planned for 2018.  AKO will send further materials to Kibosho next year.

Update 18.08.2017
The south side is completely plastered, with the north side three-quarters finished. The downpipes on the south side have just been installed, on the north side there is just one more pipe left to install underneath, as well as the connection to the outlet.

Update 29.06.2017
The roof is covered and the construction of the interior begins. As, in the past, painted concrete floors have proved not to be long-lasting, we are putting in terrazzo flooring today. These are highly durable, hard-wearing and easy to keep clean. They are also more aesthetically pleasing.

Update 02.02.2017
The weather has changed suddenly in the past week, we had a lot of rain showers of varying intensity. As you can see, we are still carrying on. Bringing the heavy timbers up to the roof was easier than expected. The team of AKO helpers was completed by Theo Spannring und Rolf Bührend. Theo is our man for roofs, while Rolf replaces Horst Sieber on the build and manages the local helpers alongside Adolf.

Update 27.01.2017
The building work continues. Adolf Rudolph and Horst Sieber have been on site since January and are making good progress. As usual, all the helpers are greatly motivated and their ingenuity knows no bounds. Problems are there to be solved!
Take a look at our latest pictures!

The AKO construction of an accident and emergency room in the existing Kibosho Clinic
Under construction since 2014, starting with the excavation of the building site and the building of an access road; the planning in 2014 was carried out in conjunction with medical specialists from the Traunstein Clinic. The construction costs for the completion of the build were estimated at €165,000, an especially low amount compared to similar German construction projects. During construction, only Tanzanian suppliers are considered, and we are working exclusively with local workers. In this way, they receive valuable training and furthermore earn money for themselves and their families in a region with a high rate of unemployment.

The facility is also donated by AKO. The planned start of operations is 2017.
