For weeks, snow and ice had a firm grip on Slovenia. Though the snow has melted, the population is still fighting against its impact. For two weeks, THW-volunteers have ensured the power supply in the region around Postojna.
THW provides another five emergency power supply units (NEA) for Slovenia. Volunteers will take the units, which have a performance of between 200 to 500 kVA, to Logatec in Slovenia and will then connect them to the Slovenian network. The operations will be supported by those THW-experts who have already been deployed in the area.
About four percent of the population in Slovenia is still without electricity. Meanwhile, an additional number of THW-volunteers have started their work. This afternoon, the German ambassador in Slovenia, Dr. Anna Prinz, visited THW’s sites of operation in Logatec and Postojna.
Since this morning, three circuits of THW have been running in the region around Postojna in the southwest of the country. Yesterday a nine-member team arrived in Slovenia and immediately afterwards started their operations.
The further supply of the population in the Philippines, affected by typhoon “Haiyan”, with water is ensured. Since the start of the work, THW’s water experts have produced more than 1.5 million litres of drinking water. The city and outskirts of Santa Fe on the island of Bantayan are supplied with the help of tankers.
In Dohuk (Autonomous Region of Kurdistan/North Iraq), THW handed over on Monday machines and vehicles for the refugee camps in the region to camp manager, Mr Edrees Koscher. Last week, THW staff had already opened a new road at camp Domiz.
When the lorry with the volunteers of THW reaches the villages around the town of Santa Fe, the faces of the people there immediately brighten up. Active THW members bring the fresh drinking water for the day to the Philippine island of Bantayan.
With immediate effect, the aid of THW for the residents of the Philippine island of Bantayan will be extended to surrounding villages. On Friday, active THW members brought drinking water to the surrounding area of the town of Santa Fe with the help of two lorry loads.
Upon request of the Foreign Office, THW will send a five-man team to the Philippines. From the Philippine capital of Manila it will support the German embassy in assessing relief possibilities to be carried out by the Federal Government as well as exploring the deployment options for THW.
The refugee camp in al Azraq in Jordan still resembles a ghost town. The core of the camp in the middle of a desert, however, is completed. The more the opening date is delayed, the more opportunities for those responsible to optimise the infrastructure at the camp arise: under certain circumstances, the facilities must last for several years until people have the opportunity to return to their home.
