Transportation of luggage
We are now transferring technology to South Sudanese student to help him develop his business in his home country. South Sudan will be our fourth country of operation. We have become a little accustomed to this system and have neglected to take basic precautions.
We learned yesterday when we made our shipping arrangements that the company we have requested to transport our shipments to Africa does not handle shipments to South Sudan.
We considered the solution and decided to ship the package via Kenya. However, there are many restrictions on shipping to Kenya. To solve these problems, we had to reduce the size of the water purification equipment. We decided to split the device and redesigned the outer frame of the device and starting today, together with the international students, we will modify it.

This long-term internship ends at the end of this month.
