Engineers Without Borders: Asheville Chapter Fundraiser
The Asheville Chapter of Engineers Without Borders invites you to a wine tasting to benefit the good work of the organization on Friday, April 13th from 5 to 7pm @MetroWines.
Engineers Without Borders, a non-profit, is a team of experienced professionals with backgrounds in environmental, manufacturing, chemical, civil, mechanical and software engineering.
In 2015, our team of Asheville engineers (http://ewbasheville.org/) saw children kicking a soccer ball into a medical waste burn pile in Uluthe Village Kenya. A year later, in collaboration with the community, we completed the building of a safe medical waste incinerator at the Uluthe Medical Hospital and Dispensary.
The current project aims to improve medical waste disposal at the larger Siaya County Hospital near Uluthe. The hospital serves more than 300 people each day, that's 106,800 people every year providing all types of medical services including antimalarial drugs and antiretroviral drugs, HIV testing, prenatal care and childbirth as well as first aid and surgery.
Donation for the event is $20, includes glass of red, white or rose. Tickets HERE.
