In light of the global COVID-19 coronavirus health crisis, IWSH Foundation announces the postponement of the upcoming Community Plumbing Challenge Indonesia Construction Week project.
Originally slated for May/June 2020, this event intended to assemble an international team of volunteer tradespeople to build a new public toilet and wash facility in Untia village, Makassar, South Sulawesi; realizing a design proposal that was developed and approved in successful collaboration with local residents during Design Week in November 2019.
The decision to postpone the upcoming Construction Week project is made with respect to current concerns around international travel, virus containment, and with the health and safety of all participating volunteers, host community members and local partners in mind.
IWSH will announce new arrangements for the Construction Week project in due course, in response to further developments impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic.
