Alima is a NGO that provides care and treatment in remote challenging areas in Africa. The NGO approached Castor with an urgent request: they had to rush to get to work in an area struck by Ebola and needed to be connected to the Internet immediately to be able to do their work. Castor Networks came to the rescue.
Connected within a few days
Due to the presence of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Alima decided to come to the aid of the local residents to fight this very contagious illness. To be successful every day counted. Alima reached out to Castor Networks with an urgent request how they could get Internet in this remote area in the northwest of the DRC. Within 24 hours we dispatched two 2.4 meter VSAT antennas to Mbandaka airport from our local stock in Kinshasa. Next day the site in Mbandaka was connected and soon after that ITIPO. The employees were connected and could do their work and liaise with their headoffice. Alima searched for a professional VSAT provider and reached out to the Castor HQ in The Netherlands. Thanks to our local offices in Africa, we were able to connect and mobilize our office in the DRC to have the installation and activation done by our local engineers within one day.
Welcoming Alima as a new permanent client
Thanks to our fast and professional manner of connecting Alima, we are happy to announce they have decided to also get our expertise for 3 sites in South Sudan. The sites are located in Juba, Raja and Diem Zubair. After the contract had been awarded to us, we immediately connected their office in Juba to the internet and are planning to put their Raja and Diem Zubair sites online directly after. Castor also supplies Alima in the Central African Republic with its reliable internet.
