Always quick to act, Architecture For Humanity is quickly pulling together efforts to offer design services to the survivors left in Cyclone Nargis’ wake this past Saturday. With more than two million people now displaced in Myanmar, even small donations will be a big help in AFH’s effort to rebuild. More than 85% of the donations go directly toward innovative design and construction solutions.
At the time of writing, $13,500 have been raised (and 25% matched) by more than 240 donors who believe in the power of design to rebuild communities. If you would like to contribute to the cause or volunteer follow the link below:
With barely more than 5% of funds raised going towards administration, AFH believes in supporting long-term community-led reconstruction.
Here’s how your donations support the rebuilding effort in Myanmar:
- $15,000 supports a design team for six months to a year.
- $50,000 builds a transitional school (Just about the most important thing you can do as it allows parents to rebuild and begin working again)
- $150,000 builds a community complex (health clinic, daycare center, jobs treating center, government offices)
