SISTERS OF BREDA AIM TO PROMOTE SOLAR
Tusaidiane Uganda is very privileged to be ordered by the Sisters of Breda to provide project management services.
The Sisters of Breda founded in the previous century Nyakibale Hospital in Rukugiri District, Mutolere Hospital in Kisoro District in Uganda and Rubya Hospital in Muleba District in Tanzania. In the nineties, they handed over the hospitals to their respective dioceses. They kept supporting hospital management in their operations.
Over the years, technology has entered the hospitals with electricity for lighting and increasingly for the use of hospital equipment. This tendency will continue in the years to come. However, the hospital bills for electricity from the grid are sky high. In addition, that electricity is not reliable and stable, which is a condition for continuous quality services to the people.
In 2017 the Sisters decided to consider helping the 3 hospitals, with solar which could supply stable, reliable and affordable energy for all uses in the hospitals.
Realizing that neither the Sisters nor Hospital Management are experienced in managing such solar projects, the Sisters asked the chairman of Tusaidiane Uganda, whether TUL could assist hospital management in the planning phase of their solar project.
First Interim and Inventory Reports are out. We hope to complete the planning phase in the second half of 2018. We will keep you informed about the progress.
