Nundu Project Completed Solar and Water Filtration Systems

Nundu Deaconess Hospital, Congo, serves a large population on the eastern edge of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The hospital is directed by Congolese physicians and has a long history of partnership with Free Methodist World Missions. In years of war, the hospital campus suffered great losses. Restoration is still underway. A small generator was their only source of power for years.  In addition, their water system was destroyed.  They sterilized instruments with water dipped from an adjacent river, in a pressure cooker, over a charcoal fire! 

 

After postponing this project in October, 2017 because of security concerns, the installation of a 20kw Solar PowerPac and underground electrical distribution system to provide power to the hospital was completed on October 2nd.  In addition to installing the electrical system, I-TEC partnered with Water Mission in Charleston, South Carolina to install a Water Purification System that now provides clean water to the hospital.  Both phases of the project went very well.
