Gov’t seeks volunteers to build houses

Just over a month after Hurricane Irma pummeled the British Virgin Islands, Government has made an appeal to building professionals to volunteer their services.

The Ministry of Health and Social Development made the call as it readies to kick-start its Social Housing Programme. Under the programme, the ministry will build houses for a number of residents who lost their dwellings during the hurricane.

“Building experts such as electricians, contractors, plumbers, engineers, architects, or anyone in the building profession are asked to volunteer with the Ministry of Health and Social Development’s Social Housing programme through their expertise, time, and services,” the ministry said.

Persons should register to volunteer by contacting the ministry at 284-468-9854.
