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.

Ni hao! As many of my previous HKS Xchange visitors to Shanghai have so aptly described the sites and sounds of this city, I wanted to explore a relatively new part of the Shanghai landscape, its parks. Being an avid walker I've been able to wander through many of these wonderful spaces and wanted to share some of what I've seen and learned.
