BYRNELOOBY PARTNERS WITH ARTICLE 25 ON THE DELIVERY OF A CSR PROJECT
ByrneLooby will deliver the design of a new multidisciplinary care centre for Operation Smile Morocco | Corporate Social Responsibility
ByrneLooby is delighted to be working with Article 25, a not-for-profit organisation in London, driven by the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states that everyone has the right to adequate, dignified shelter. Article 25's corporate mission is to provide a world where all communities can access better housing, safe school buildings and effective clinics and hospitals. ByrneLooby will deliver the design of a new multidisciplinary care centre for Operation Smile Morocco in Marrakech. A child is born with a cleft lip or palate every 3 minutes. Without treatment, a cleft palate can cause difficulties with eating, drinking and breathing. In Morocco, there are a limited number of facilities to treat cleft palates, and so families are forced to travel long distances to receive the necessary treatment for their children. Operation Smile - a global charity of volunteer surgeons and clinical staff – runs several hundred reconstructive surgery missions in more than 30 countries every year.
As a pro-bono project, our London team will carry out the consulting design work in their own free time, leading the project across multi-disciplines, including seismic structural, civil and geotechnical/environmental work
Jeremy Foster, Technical Director at ByrneLooby, commented:
"“We look forward to the progression of this project and will keep you updated on our progress. We are thankful for the opportunity given by Article 25 to deliver this life-changing infrastructure for thousands of people in Morocco".
