- Sister Milgitha uses for over 20 years, a Volkswagen T3 syncro for their charitable work in Rwanda.
- Special exhibition “30 years, Volkswagen VW Bus T3 was” a magnet for many visitors.
At the end of T3 found in the car museum exhibition, Volkswagen is still a very special T3 a fan: Sister Milgitha, runs a health center in Rwanda for over 20 years and a T3 syncro ambulance permanently faithful companion is called. Staying with her brother in Wolfsburg, was of course a visit to the passionate driver in the VW car museum on the program.
If Milgitha sister tells of her Volkswagen T3, she goes into raptures. No wonder, since the car has been found now for over 20 years as a reliable, robust and economic journeyman. And it is “their” T3, since the vehicle was equipped by Volkswagen after Milgithas ideas, according to the Rwandan roads and health conditions. The Bulli has for example two retractable seats on the side walls can be pushed in order according to need and two stretchers. To protect the drivetrain from damage caused by the extremely poor road conditions the car was an underbody paneling. Milgitha Sun and her sister are T3 as well as all the requirements grown to carry out their medical work well over distances sometimes exceeding 100 km. The Rwandans applaud the Volkswagen T3 lot of respect.
Today’s 73 year old VW driver and a trained specialist nurse Milgitha already came in the early 1970s at the request of the Bishop of Rwanda in the country. At that time it was ravaged by an acute shortage of medical care and nursing staff. It was a real challenge to build up from the Belgian sisters inherited health and so that in addition to outpatient and inpatient treatment of the sick, the offered spectrum goes with, for example orphanage and school for mothers today far beyond the purely medical. With the beginning of its activities in Rwanda Milgitha it was obvious that she had to give medical assistance beyond the borders of the health center and also wanted. Very quickly, she bought herself thus be the first official car – and how could it be otherwise – a red Volkswagen Beetle, which she still told today with enthusiasm.
The special exhibition “30 years, Volkswagen VW Bus T3″ in the Volkswagen car museum was a great success. Around 4,000 guests have visited the exhibition, and their responses it was found that the T3 is then as now one of the most popular Bullis, both in this life as well as a collector’s piece. This year celebrates its 25th anniversary, Volkswagen Auto Museum, which is celebrated from late April with a new special exhibition entitled “1985 to 2010.
