Community Centre for People with Disabilities, Hera
Our teams have all been booked, with HANDS Team 1 travelling in August, and Team 2 in October. Yooralla teams will travel throughout September, and local people will be employed for the duration of the build.
The aim of this project is to build a safe place for people living with a disability in the areas around Hera to attend physio as well as receive medical care if required. There will be showers available, and education provided for the community about the needs of people with a disability.
Formed in 2005 after returning from buiding a pre-school, we have completed projects in Hera and Sidara, including pre- and primary schools, and a health clinic.
We continue to provide funding for the ongoing development of teachers and nurses, and maintenance of the projects we build.
Yooralla team have just about packed to go home, leaving the two remaining HANDS Inc. teams with internals to complete.
We are aiming to have the centre completed and open in January 2013.
A big THANK YOU to everyone who has assisted with this project.
