Mindelheim helps rural communities of Papua New Guinea

01/08/2007: Germany

The Marist College in Mindelheim (Germany) gathered the sum of 5,000 euros to sustain a project for the diffusion of electrical energy in the rural communities of Papua New Guinea. The school collection was organised by Bro. Heinrich Schamberger for the school pastoral activities.

The project, managed by Brother Kevin Murray and Brother Chris Wills of the Marist Solidarity Office Australia, aims to diffuse the access to electrical energy for the communities that live in the rural zones of Papua New Guinea, through the installation of a hydraulic pump which works with the force of water and the formation of local “monitors-technicians” for the handling of the pump.

The pump that will be installed uses the water current from streams or other sources that are found near the villages, to produce energy twenty-four hours a day, without the need of fuel, electricity and other sources of energy. Brother Kevin Murray is an expert in the installation, the functioning and the handling of this type of pump, thus it is he who has followed up the project at the technical level.

The beneficiary of the project is the population of the villages in Wewak zone, which will be able to have electrical energy for its activities and improve its life conditions.
We thank you the students and parents of the Marist College in Mindelheim for their generous contribution.
