Working on Furniture for Diospi Suyana School

There is a lot of work still left to be done in preparation for the school year that starts in March!  It looks like reinforcements are on the way.  Every day as I enter the hospital I see the piles of wood stacked up, and I think “Man, there is still a lot of work to be done!”  Here is some more news from the Diospi Suyana Hospital webstite.

The rapid carpentry deployment force is marching up

Master carpenter Burkhard Jochum comes to Curahuasi for a month – as a volunteer!

Our hospital carpenters are doing their best to produce all those shelves, cupboards, desks and pin boards for Diospi Suyana school. The sheer quantity of furniture to be manufactured, however, is so huge that, disheartened, most journeymen would throw their saws in the corner.  Help is marching up, though. From 16 February, master carpenter Burkhard Jochum is going to hammer, saw, file and screw as though his regular breakfast depended on it. Between 2007 and 2008 he already did a fabulous job on the hospital’s interior with, as just one example, 400 doors crafted by him. A personal attribute of his: quarterly workaholic.
