Electrification of the Ipamu hospital (Democratic Republic of Congo) with ESF
Electricians without borders (ESF) was requested by the Development Association of Ipamu farmers (village in the center of the Democratic Republic of Congo) to electrify the referral hospital in the region, as well as educational institutions, boarding schools and accommodation of health care and education staffs. The main objective of the project is to contribute to improving the living conditions of the population and access to education and health care.
This project is a continuation of the first work made by ESF in January 2014 as part of a first phase, namely the construction of a first backbone network and the connection of the hospital (see picture).
This new project will aim to continue the work of building the network, connecting buildings, renovating interior installations of public buildings and places (connection of lighting devices in classrooms and in boarding schools) and staff quarters (doctors teachers, nurses).
It will be possible to host high level professionals, but also visiting stakeholders for general education and training courses at the Institute of Medical Education. Nearly 22,500 people will benefit from these new facilities.
