Un Techo para Chile (A Roof for Chile)

Is the one I am just itching to find the time to get involved with. They can have my entire team of architects, engineers, and lawyers, as long as I get to the chance to sink a nail out of a nail gun through my hand (yea, we use to just hit our thumbs with hammer).

I think it was because I tried to join a habitat for humanity project in central America as a 23 year-old backpacker and they sent me a typical computer form rejection letter back. I had owned a construction contracting company for two years, and manged another construction company for two years, and had done all jobs between sweeping floors and firing people by that point in my life.

Now looking back at it is kind of silly, and more my mistake than theirs. I guess I took the bureaucracy personally. If you walk up to any construction site in the world and tell the boss you are willing to work for no pay, who is going to say go away? someone would put you to work.

I never had much luck with formal applications. Always better to knock on the boss's door and then have them tell you to go away. It almost never happens, as I found out in the years after that.

This was announced by the Minister for Health, Álvaro Erazo, who received the field hospital donated by the Brazilian government (destined for Cerro Navia) accompanied by Julio Montt, the subsecretary for Relief Networks. Subsequently both visited the field hospital donated by Cuba (in Rancagua) and the army field hospital (in Talca).
