DO YOU WANT TO BE A VOLUNTEER ENGINEER?

Acutely aware of BERD’s social responsibility, we created BERD – Bridges of Solidarity in order to practically assist in areas affected by the disaster. In such circumstances, we apply our engineering expertise to help with reconstruction as well as galvanising our network of partners and clients to aid people in these terrible situations.

The BERD – Bridges of Solidarity project was born in the light of the recent events in Portugal, the biggest human tragedy in the country in living memory. We felt compelled to take action and become an active part of the reconstruction of those villages affected by the devastating forest fires in "Pedrógão Grande".

The first step is to create a database of volunteers to help rebuild some of the houses destroyed by fire. Next, we will contact the relevant authorities in order to organise the reconstruction effectively and contact our network in order to obtain the requisite materials and expertise to ensure the project is a success. Finally, with the help of our volunteers and network, we will commence the reconstruction.

 

We require both skilled and unskilled volunteers – everyone can make a difference in this difficult time. If you would like to register to become part of our volunteer force, please follow the link https://goo.gl/forms/F3wdQggkPZkrgGjz2 and help those who have lost everything.

 If you represent a company that wants to be involved with your know-how, materials or in other ways, please contact us by e-mail: bridgesofsolidarity@berd.eu

Thank you all! BERD – Bridges of Solidarity
