Both devices are urgently needed in the hospital. The head physician and the deputy mayor of Arrondissement No 1 were present at the handover and were very happy about the support.

We would like to thank the people involved from the neighbourhood, Baba, Moctar, Bara for the organisation and all the generous donors from Germany who made this meeting possible!
Renovation of the Kiri 2022 infirmary
Already last year, the association was able to donate materials such as hospital beds, and this year it was a question of renovating and equipping the premises. The rooms in the CSPS had been in need of renovation for a long time, and now new roof panels and window panes have been installed, as well as painting of the exterior of all buildings, including the sanitary facilities. On 27 February 2022, an official ceremony was held in the presence of representatives of the Kiri district, the CSPS hospital, the Burkinabe partner association Woka Kuma Burkina Faso and the delegation of Woka Kuma Deutschland e.V. to view the completed premises. On behalf of the population, all those involved were thanked. Especially this year, after the long time in a global pandemic, it was important for the association to emphasise commitment in health care.
We thank all the people who made these projects possible with their contribution and support!
