Do you think you could do some voluntary work overseas?
Article-25, the UK’s leading architectural aid charity, is currently looking for architects who can help them with their work in Nepal. AfH has received the following request for assistance.
“Article 25 is recruiting an architect with an interest in healthcare design to work on a hospital in Nepal.
The work is important for the long term recovery of Nepal after the earthquakes of 2015.
The hospital, located near Kathmandu, provided essential emergency care after the earthquakes. However, the damage it suffered and the expanding workload placed on it require a site-wide reorganisation of the hospital’s buildings. Specific healthcare functions will require new buildings to provide improved facilities.
The volunteer architect will lead a site-wide Masterplan and the design of new buildings.
The ideal volunteer will be a qualified architect with significant work experience and a strong interest in healthcare design. The work will involve travel to Nepal.
The work will be based in Article 25’s London office and will be a full time volunteer position for approximately 6 months.
Anyone who would like some additional information can contact me by telephone on the number below.”
