I’ve departed London for Uganda with our project partner, Engineers For Overseas Development’s Carmarthenshire group from Southwest Wales, to begin work on Citizen HKS’ first project – a new maternity ward in Kachumbala, Uganda. I’ll be with the EFOD team on site for two weeks where we’ll be presenting, tweaking and gaining approval for the maternity ward design from local leadership and the Bukeda District Council. Following a ground breaking ceremony and additional site set-up, we’re recruiting and training Kachumbala locals and, working together, we will dig the foundation, lay drainage and cast up to the slab.
