The construction of the hospital continues to progress, on July 30, 2022 we received the latest pictures from Rev. Musoke Genza and he writes to us as follows: Warm greetings from the men’s hospital in Ssunga! The building is now getting a roof (third phase of construction). Sister Bernadette, who is in charge of the clinic, sends dear greetings and a thank you.The (second) phase was completed in April (2022). The budget was not enough.Apart from the fact that the size and the requirements of the building have increased, the euro exchange rate has also decreased. When we budgeted (2021), it was 4,000 shillings. Today it is at 3,700.- shillings!Secondly, with the war in Ukraine and high fuel / transportation costs, there is a lot of inflation in Uganda.These problems imply that the money we had budgeted for the station will not be enough to complete it. Currently, we still have money to continue the construction. So now we are doing the roofing (third phase), since May.We are really grateful to you / Menschenbruecke for the support. With the men’s clinic comes more health for our people in Ssunga-Luvule!Warmest greetings, and God’s blessing
