The first aid project due to HOPE – by Alexander von Wiedenbeck.

The first aid project financed by HOPE – by Alexander von Wiedenbeck is in the middle of implementation. For the dumpsite children (and their families) in Inayawan we were able to build three water supply stations and a sanitary facility (washing area / WC). Just the water stations helped enormously in the region, because people had previously go several kilometers into the city and buy water very expensive in canisters. More than 900 people now benefit from the water stations.

In addition, the building has been extended by a training / multipurpose room, in which will be happen soon parttime medical examinations / treatments (if included), as well as training / lessons for the children. So far, 113 children have been registered for the school program. Knowledge and education are the most important assets for building and developing a region, or even a whole country. The sustainability we are aiming for, is definitely given and the region will benefit from this aid project for a long time to come.
