Curahuasi: Diospi Suyana’s Radio and TV-aerial tower is standing

Dear Diospi Friends, the work for the Hospital’s New Storey is progressing slowly, but steadily. Oxitec has finished laying the pipes for the medical gases and is no longer on site. In the first stage of construction all air ventilation ducts are in place, the wall breakthroughs are being plastered over and the outstanding ceilings have been filled. All these jobs are not very noticeable, but time-intense.

At our Aerial Tower Site we have taken a massive step forwards, notwithstanding difficult conditions. The mast is fixed and in place and the enclosing walling is nearing completion.  Our next project is the small hut in the compound, in which we will put all the necessary equipment.

Speak to you next week, best regards, Udo.
