As you know, since I finished my "first career" at DECCO, I have been a volunteer at Build Health International (BHI), which is a 501(c)3, non-profit, executing health care projects in the world's most neglected areas. We do everything from concept to turnover, including putting staff on the ground. Right now we are very busy in Haiti as a result of Hurricane Matthew. It will take years to restore the health care infrastructure and schools in the southwestern Haiti. At BHI, we are incredibly busy and are putting out an appeal to those in the construction industry for any donations of used or new construction tools and equipment. What we'd normally say is too worn in the States will still go a long way in Haiti. I am hoping that ABC and its members can help out. Attached is a pdf with a bit more about BHI, and contact information for any members able to help. It's a low-cost or no-cost way to really make a difference in a way that not only does good, but literally saves lives. The BHI Tools document pdf is a list of tools and equipment we can put to use immediately. As you can see, the list runs from simple hand and power tools, to old gang boxes, and larger equipment. I'm willing to bet that almost all members have some of this around. Anyone who would like more info should feel free to contact me directly.
Thanks so much for your help, and that of ABC. I hope this gives us a chance to work together once again!
