On the eve of the 56th tour of the ambulance boat, the members of the team met in Bolenge. Together they mourn Pastor Dorothea Philipps, who died on June 19, 2021 at the age of 80 in Dortmund.

The ambulance boat project coordinator, Oscar Pekombe, writes to the Dortmund partners:

„It is with great sadness that we heard of the death of our late mother Reverend Philipps (Mutter). On behalf of the members of the Bateau Ambulance and my family, we express our deepest condolences and miss the words to testify that the works are numerous and that Conscience is currently not at ease. God had given us Mother Philip and He took her back to us in his sovereignty. May the earth be sweet and welcoming to him. „
