Water supply and maintenance project – Kabonwule, Northern Ghana
The village of Kabonwule in the Northern Region of Ghana suffers from water shortage during the dry season. Additionally, the highly extended fluoride content in the ground water leads to health problems. Our three Ghanaian members Joseph, Edmund and John enabled a new source of water by the provision of a new pump for a dysfunctioning borehole and trained the inhabitants in filtration of the drinking water by using a readily accessing filter material to reduce the fluoride content. The following video shows their impressions in Kabonwule.

A team of technology without borders found a solution for the rubbish problem at the Holy Family Hospital in Techiman (Ghana) in spring 2012. By training the staff in the hospital a seperation of the garbage was achieved. Uninfected plastic is now brought to a recycling company; Infected plastic (dripping, needles, etc.) are combusted effectively and environmentally friendly. For this purpose, a combustion plant with two high-performance furnaces was built.
