Architecture for Humanity - Myanmar Rebuilding Appeal

Architecture for Humanity is raising funds to support reconstruction effortsafter this weekend's devastating cyclone in Myanmar.

Architecture for Humanity: Myanmar Rebuilding Appeal

Often media attention focuses on relief efforts. Months later, after thecameras have left, communities face the difficult task of rebuilding with little support. Architecture for Humanity offers long-term technicalexpertise when it is needed most during the reconstruction phase. Our work will focus on rebuilding sustainable clinics, schools, communitycenters and other critical infrastructure as well as housing. Past experience has shown that these buildings serve as critical anchors inhelping communities rebuild and families restart their lives.

How your contribution can make a difference:
* $15,000 supports a design team for six months to a year.
* $50,000 builds a transitional school (Just about the most important thing you can do as it allows parents to rebuild and begin working again)
* $150,000 builds a community complex (health clinic, daycare center, jobstraining center, government offices.)

If you are interested in getting involved, contact us at: .
