Dr. Vincent De Haas is the General Administrator of the Congregation “Alles voor Allen” of the Sisters of Breda. The Sisters founded the 2 hospitals in Uganda, St Francis Mutolere in Kisoro District and Karoli Lwanga Hospital Nyakibale in Rukungiri District, and the one in Tanzania, Rubya Council District Hospital in Muleba, Kagera Region
Tusaidiane Uganda is doing solar consultancy for the 3 hospitals on request of the Sisters of Breda. We were privileged to join Dr. De Haas during his visit to the 3 hospitals from the 28th of May to the 7th of June.
Dr de Haas had meetings with hospital management and several Sister Congregations. He became physically acquainted with many names in and around the hospitals, and he also met the contractor of the hospital solar projects.
During his visit he also met different dignitaries from the different dioceses, who are to oversee the 3 hospitals.
His safari was important for Tusaidiane Uganda because during the trip we managed to establish and strengthen relations with many people and also to interact with the Administrators of the different Sister Congregations.
Tusaidiane Uganda handed over to Dr. Christine Montag new flushing toilets of fourteen stands on behalf of the community which was represented by the town mayor of Iganga and 2 school inspectors . These toilets were funded by 3 Rotary clubs in Germany under their theme of water and sanitation.
The mayor thanked the Rotary Clubs through Dr. Christine for this big push to the school because proper toilets is one of the big challenges facing many schools in Iganga. He also urged the school and the community parents to keep the facility in the shape as they have received it.
Tusaidaine Uganda thanked Dr. Christine for giving the opportunity to work on the toilets. We hope that they improve the sanitation in the school, hence better education for the pupils.

Greetings to all readers of this News survey, Please find the attached November News.
NEWS November 2018
In July 2018 the Technicians of Tusaidiane Uganda were serving 69 installed Pentair LineGuard Water Purifiers.
In the workshop with 51 Clients in January 2018 we agreed to serve the purifiers twice a year instead of three time a year as before. Main reason for it was to reduce costs, especially transport costs.
From a quality point of view Technicians believed and advised such move is acceptable. Clients with a challenge will continue to phone the Technicians when there is a problem, after which they will help.
For 42 purifiers we could register properly the use of safe drinking water over 6 months (February-July 2018) compared to the period August 2017 to January 2018.
For 15 purifiers we could not do that because of either the unit was out of order or there were made mistakes in recording the use registered by the computer.
For twelve (12) Clients we can not record measurements, because their purifier does not have that functionality.
Conclusions for the 42 Clients with properly recording the use are:
- During the last 6 months (February-July 2018) the use reduced to the same level as in the comparable period in 2017, whereas there was a clear higher use in the period August17-January18.
- The use during August 2017 and January 2018 (50.400 litres on average) dropped to 39.500 litres during February-July 2018.
- Consequently, the number of users using 0,5 litres of safe drinking water per day for those 42 clients dropped from almost 17.000 people to 13.000 users, the same number as during February-July 2017.
Let us hope that next time our Clients will be able to serve at least the same number of people as before.
PROGRESS IN SOLAR PROJECTS FOR THE 3 HOSPITALS. (See upload on 8 February 2018)
Meanwhile we are almost at the end of the planning phase for the 3 hospitals; Nyakibale, Mutolere and Rubya.
CONGRAVA (the sisters of Breda) have agreed to finance the solar project for all the 3 hospitals. The total investment amounts to almost 1.3 million US dollars. This is a big mile stone to the hospitals.
CONGRAVA has asked Tusaidiane Uganda to assist the implementation of the 3 projects on their behalf. Of course, we are willing to do so.
Also, about the implementation, we will keep you informed.
