The Indian Ocean Disaster - Sri Lanka

David McKenna, a project engineer with TES Consulting Engineers, Dublin has taken leave of absence to work for GOAL in Sri Lanka. David registered as a volunteer engineer with the Institution of Engineers of Ireland (IEI) in August 2004 and through their protocol agreement for engineers supporting the developing world became involved with GOAL.

GOAL is working alongside national staff and partner organisations in Sri Lanka Southern India, the Andaman Islands and Indonesia. David has been trained in emergency relief and development operations over the past six months and will be working with a GOAL team of 2 Engineers in the Matara area of Sri Lanka, which is continuing to clear debris left behind by the tsunami and to facilitate the construction of temporary shelters, essential restoration of water and sanitation facilities and the distribution of non-food items to the thousands of people now living in relief camps in this area.

We, at TES Consulting Engineers, would like to take this opportunity to wish David every success in his forthcoming work with GOAL and we look forward to his return to Ireland and TES in the future.
