Aug 1, 2020 – Updated notice re: 2019 novel coronavirus
All Builds have been cancelled for 2020 as we continue to closely monitor the updated pandemic information provided by the World Health Organization, the Canadian Travel Advisories, and the Government Advisories of our international partner communities.
Our overriding concern and priority, as always, is for the health and safety of our volunteers and the people in the communities in which we serve.
We expect the full resumption of our Builds Program will be gradual and may take 12 months or longer before all international operations have fully resumed. We also understand Builds may resume sooner in some locations than others. Decisions to resume Builds in each country will vary based on the status of the pandemic in the communities we serve, directives from their relevant governments and health organizations in addition to any Canadian directives.
Please continue to check for updates and know that as soon as we are confident in the ability to travel and resume Builds safely, we will. Our international community partners are eager to resume our work together in meeting the needs of their most vulnerable community members.
Finally, we are continuing to track interest through the contact form below. If you are interested in volunteering or supporting a particular Build, or simply have some questions, please complete the form and we will be in touch. Once we are able to open registrations, priority will be given to those who have expressed interest.
