Besides raising funds for the Nepal children home building project, Light & Love Charity volunteers of various professional backgrounds also contributed their time and skills in supporting the project. These included Structural Engineers from Taiwan and Singapore volunteering and working with an Architect from Vancouver, a volunteer with affiliated organization of Light and Love Home –Vancouver. Jointly, they designed the 3 stories children home that is safer in earth quake zone. The subsequent effort included contract preparation, technical interview with potential builders and construction supervisor, sanitary & plumbing work review, electrical supply system work review and subsequent site visits on construction progress review.
From this project, we witnessed and were deeply encouraged by many professionals who spent time from their busy work schedule and jointly make a difference in many children’s life in Nepal. The progress of the construction is pleasantly smooth and the new home is expected to be ready for move in the 1st quarter of 2014.
