Over the last four months Waiting Hearts project has seen exciting progress at the Waiting Hut at RFM Hospital. The renovation is about to come to its end thanks to Seth and Kaylee Carley from Bethany First Church, Suvi Ristolainen from Diak University Finland, and the administration and maintenance team from RFM.

 

This project has been supported by Bethany First Church from US, Tapiola parish from Finland and Geneva Evangelic Lutheran church from Switzerland.

 

At the end of February Seth Carley was able to go to Cashbuild in Manzini with the carpenters from RFM to buy the first supplies need to start work at the Waiting Hut. Since then the project has been proceeding rapidly thanks to the help and energy from Michael Mabunza, the head of the maintenance department at RFM Hospital.

 

In the beginning of March the women at the Waiting Hut were moved to another building on the RFM compound while as work was beginning at the hut. First began renovation by removing much of the old appliances and furnishings that were worn and useless. The old bathtub, sink and toilet were removed.

 

Better lighting and more electrical outlets were rewired as well as a brand new lower ceiling was put to make the building warmer and more comfortable. New guttering was put on the outside of the building to prevent leaking and a new front door was also installed. After this was done, the new showers were built, the new sinks and toilet installed, new shelving built and then painted all the inside and the new front door. New windows are installed and painted. A washbasin was placed outside the hut for women to do laundry. Added to this, new cleaning equipment allows the current habitants to keep the hut a cleaner, healthier and safer environment.

 

The final touches are still being done and new mattresses are still on their way, but the waiting hearts of the mothers can already wait in a cozier, newly renovated, clean and safe hut. Colorful hut looks so much warmer and more inviting place to stay now and mothers are happy for all the improvements.
