A container for Sage Hospital IIDienstag, 14. Dezember 2010
In the morning of the 6th of november our group and the container reached the SAGE HOSPITAL in Warang, Senegal. During the autumn we collected needful things and shipped the container from berlin at the 6th of october.
We were very happy that everything we packed was still there. Thanks to our sponsors and partners we could transport about 30 m3 of urgently needed equipment, furniture and consumer goods.
Nearly half of the village came to see and help bringing the staff into the hospital. It was the beginning of a ten days work for nine members and friends of the SAGE HOSPITAL e.V.
Within the next weeks we will show you some image series of our visit and work and tell you some facts of the project which runs since 2003.

A container for Sage HospitalDonnerstag, 21. Oktober 2010
Durch die Unterstützung der Spedition ITG und zahlreicher Firmen und Privatspendern konnten wir heute den diesjährigen Container für das Krankenhaus beladen.
Vorausgegangen war ein halbjährlicher Marathon durch Behörden und Zoll. Zusammen kamen fast 30 Kubikmeter Hilfsgüter. Die Liste umfasst notwendige Technik und Ausstattung, wie Tische und Regale, Krankenbetten, Matratzen, drei Rollstühle und über 20 Paar Krücken, Medikamente, Verbandsmaterial, Infusionslösungen und Kanülen. Daneben Schulmaterial, wie Stifte, Papier und Schulranzen aber auch Kuscheltiere und 250 Wasserbälle für die Kleinsten.
Wir bedanken uns bei allen Unterstützern und Spendern, dem Packteam und allen, die uns auf diesem Wege begleitet haben.
Besonderer Dank gebührt den Firmen Otto Bock und BBraun, die die Lieferung unbürokratisch und praktisch in letzter Minute noch mit ihren Produkten vervollständigt haben.
Eingedeckt! The work, the show, the partyDonnerstag, 20. Mai 2010
It was a successful night for Sage Hospital.
After 2 nights of building 180 people listened to the literary performance „Der ewige Brunnen“ of Ben Becker and had a delicious meal. After the dessert the famous Band The BossHoss started the party with an unplugged live concert followed by the house dj Divinity. The ones who stayed longer than the rest had the chance to be part of a spontanous privat concert of Ben Becker and his old friend Yoyo Röhm.
In the end we got about 15.000 euros for the Sage Hospital. This money will help us to pay the costs until the end of the year and to bring necessary stuff to Senegal in October.
Many thanks to all guests, sponsors and the people who helped us running this project.
