Tradespeople are getting a chance to give back and help those in need with their skills.
I just read about a Katoomba tradie who returned from a humanitarian trip to earthquake affected Nepal earlier this year. The tradie speaks candidly about his experience rebuilding a school destroyed by the earthquake, describing the ‘tough’ conditions working in the remote village of Maidi, 160km west of Kathmandu.
Some of the hardships included extremely high temperatures and the lack of basic equipment that we would ordinarily make construction work alot easier.
The expedition was linked to the Rotary Club and another one is expected to return to the area in March. If you’re interested, email [email protected] or contact 0412 396 202.
