Buea Cameroon – Work began in mid April to correct some items and then complete the construction of the inpatient building of the Seventh-day Adventist Hospital. The work has entailed removing the iron security bars and extending them 6 cm from the wall. Once the bars were removed the sills were sanded to tilt to the outside of the building and mosquito screens were added. With the iron bars replaced, the remaining tile work began. Work has also begun in repairing an old septic tank and creating a new one. The staff and administration are hopeful that the exterior work will be complete before the heavy rains come.
