Care Corner Orphanage
Care Corner Orphanage, located in Chiangmai, was established in April 1995. They function as a care centre for children who are unable to attend normal school due to family backgrounds of HIV, drug addiction and broken homes.
EWB (SG) performed a site recce to understand the concerns of the orphanage and came to a decision to explore avenues to add an additional storey to the boys' building. This would allow the orphanage to accommodate more children from the region who require a shelter.
With this proposed amendment, we would also aim to address some of the other existing problems such as the overflow of existing septic tanks and the rainwater leaks through existing zinc sheet roofs.
In the upcoming year, we will be working with engineering consultants to review our design and recruiting volunteers with experience in building and affiliated services design as well.
