...and that becomes the perfect moment to reach out to help those in need, anyway you can. .
@mckarchitects are proud to help one such family who lost everything in the Tathra bushfire of 2018. The process is long and takes every bit of energy those who’ve suffered can muster. But with help comes hope, and hope goes a long way.
Peter Boyce (PCA) got the ball rolling, literally flying into Tathra post fire, putting his hand up, and offering to help those in need, gratis. When Peter contacted our office we didn’t hesitate to jump on board and help those in need with him.
The devastating recent bushfires have created a heightened awareness of the need to rethink our approach to habitat and the environment. They’ve also created an opportunity for Australians to do what they do best; to help those in need. .
This weekend we are trading our pencils for our tool belts, and together with our friends from @tokiconstruction are heading to Tathra to literally help with the rebuild of this property lost in March 2018.
Thousands of families have been affected by the recent bushfires, and this is the grim reality ahead of them: the rebuilding process is long and arduous and will probably become harder once the Authorities review the current standards in light of recent events.
So we challenge our colleagues to reach out to those in need; to offer your services to help those overwhelmed by devastation; to provide hope in the process of rebuilding lives. Together we can make a difference, even if it is just one family at a time.
