Ten of the finest (!) Bechtel Colleagues from UK Infrastructure business have teamed together with the Charity, Bridges to Prosperity, to plan and deliver a much needed footbridge for the villagers of Nkuna, in Rwanda. 

The team consists of: Camilla Barrow, David Ivo, Gillian Angliss, James Martin, Catharine Cromack, Mohamad Al Taki, Adam Cooper, Alexey Larin and Damian Strugala.

This bridge will enable the 2,505 community members safe and all year access to the Mahoko market centre to trade and sell as well as the Terimbere health centre. The river which separates the two communities is too dangerous to cross due to flooding 180 days of the year which cuts off critical resources to the community. Attempts to cross the river by the villagers has resulted in multiple incidents and fatalities each year.

After months of engagement and surveys with the community, the design for a 76m suspended bridge is complete and the team have committed a two week period to complete the build.

£15,000 is required to fund the final build which will take place over two weeks from the 20th July. The money raised will cover the travel costs, safety gear, and small tools and equipment for the team of ten (listed above) and for the local workforce.

Without this funding the project will not take place and we are running out of time! Any support for this project will be greatly received and will really make a difference.

Thank you
