Excerpts and description of work and staff by Mr. Mantor


Our hospital is outfitted with 1946 plumbing and it needs to be replaced. This is a very big and technical project. Our constraints are funding and acquiring qualified and experienced plumbers to draw up a plumbing system replacement plan and attach realistic cost estimate. With the realistic cost estimate, we will invite our partners to support us to modernize the plumbing system.

We solicit volunteer plumbers to assist us.

We will provide in country transportation, housing and meals.

The pediatric ward and the ob/gyn ward will be the first areas that will be retrofit. We have a very hard working and committed maintenance crew.  However, their level of expertise is limited. 

We have one plumber and one plumbing assistant who learned their trade through an apprentice type training.    All water and sewage systems are onsite with well water and septic field.  We have deep drilled wells and electric pumps pumping water into many reservoirs with gravity flow through the piping system. 


Piping Materials are locally available.
