For some time Kadaver and Masanga have been working on the establishment of computer sleeves import from Sierra Leone also called Bangura Bags. The Computer sleeves are created out of used bicycle tubes in the tailor shop at the hospital compound. They fit the various  PC´s and Apple Macbooks both 13″, 15″ and 17″.
Kadavers goal is to take part of the establishment of a local sustainable business. The Tailor shop is a part of the Hospital project that aim to provide free treatment for the people in Sierra Leone. By selling Bangura Bags a cash flow is created in the community, people are getting employed and sick people are treated. To read more about Masanga hospital, click this link. As ambassador for the bags Nikolaj Kirk stands in front. The establishment of the business os in general going very well. We at kadaver are proud to present the next batch of Bangura Bags.

About four years ago Dr. Peter Bo Jørgensen decided to re-open a hospital, MASANGA Leprosy Hospital, in the most poor country in the world, Sierra Leone. As you probably know the Sierra Leone Civil War began in 1991, by the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) under Foday Sankoh. Tens of thousands died and more than 2 million people (well over one-third of the population) were displaced because of the 11-year conflict. Neighbouring countries became host to significant numbers of refugees attempting to escape the civil war. The war officially ended the 18th January 2002. The country by now is still really infected by the war. Before Peter Bo Jørgensen re-opened MASANGA, only 125 doctors was represented in the entire country.
MASANGA has kept developing ever since, and they have extended the organisation with The Masanga Educational Program & The Masanga Sustainable Enterprise.

Søren Bo Steendahl has been a volunteer for the Masanga Organization for some years by now. In August 2009, Søren visited Masanga with various projects to work with. He was namely thrilled by the one of newly opened shops, The Tailor Shop. 2 years ago Henrik Smedegaard from Baisikeli, presented an idea of bags made out of used bicycle tubes. The two kaospilots started to work on the concept and because of time restrictions the idea was on “standby”. Untill in April,2009, where Lea Sabine Dong initiated the production together with the tailors. Later Søren came to Masanga and returned to Denmark with 50 demo bags.
During September Kadaver has made a business plan on how to sell the bags here in Europe.
Briefly the project is about nursing the entrepreneurship in the developing countries, making authentic products for the consumers in Europe and do charity for the Masanga Hospital with the surplus.
By now we have designers and tailors at The Tailor Shop at MASANGA, who tries to enforce and strengthen the production.
Kadaver is in contact with different distributors and shops in Denmark and Sweden, and we are soon ready to launch the product.
