Our wards were constructed between 1965 and 1970 and do not meet current requirements and standards. Windows are broken, parts of the roofs are leaking water, patients are lacking privacy, the toilets are not disability-friendly etc.. The pipelines for drainage of rain water are very old and some of them are blocked, resulting in flooding of some wards during the rain season.
Renovations are urgently needed, including rehabilitation of rain water pipes, renovation of the corridors, installation of tiles, windows and adequate illumination on the wards and construction of disability-friendly toilets.
In September 2021, we managed to start with renovation of male surgical ward, one toilet and the corridors. On the ward, tiles are installed as well as new windows and curtains in order to provide more privacy for our patients. Some of the metal sheets of the roof are being exchanged. The surface of the main corridor is levelled and terrazzo being applied.
Thanks to a generous donation through Missio Austria, we managed to start with renovation of the rain water system and two more toilets in October 2021.
For the remaining 7 wards and 3 toilets we are still in the process of fundraising.
