Penn State Architectural Engineering Student Available to Volunteer in Chile This Summer: Searching for Summer Volunteer Position

Here is Brian's message:

"My name is Brian B. I am currently a sophomore architectural engineering student at Penn State. When the earthquake struck Chile a few weeks ago, I wondered if there was a way that I could use my knowledge of building to help the people of Chile rebuild and gain building experience. Volunteering in Chile would be a great way for me to learn about construction and help people in need. I would be interested in helping out this coming summer. Please contact me with any information on summer volunteering programs....."

If there is any organization going to Chile on a rebuilding mission trip, please contact me at

We say thanks to Brian for wanting to volunteer this Summer in Chile. We need more volunteers like him.

Mapuche Communities Complain about Abandonment Feelings and Lack of Assistance

It is true the government of Chile is doing its best to get the situation under control.  It is doing its best to help all its citizens.  So far, some of the remote Mapuche communities have not been reached by all the government teams and supplies sent to the devastated central-south regions.  Yet, they were the most hit by the Feb. 27 quake.  The delay may be due to the remoteness of the areas or has nothing to do with the past uprisings and hijackings that were common in the areas since the Mapuche indigenous groups have formed their alliance.  Find out more about the plight of the Mapuche natives after the quake.  Everyone hopes that the government will do its best to meet these urgent needs.  At the same time, we hope that the Mapuche will lay down their arms so as to avoid any incidents.  Basic needs are the priority right now.

Lo Que Habitat Esta Haciendo en Chile: Se Requieren Voluntarios y Donaciones

Aqui esta lo que Habitat para la humanidad Chile esta haciendo:
"Hábitat para la Humanidad Chile ha trabajado en alianza con el Ministerio de Vivienda por mucho tiempo, así que seguirán siendo aliados en la respuesta. A través de varios tipos de apoyo técnico, Hábitat Chile ayuda a comités de vivienda de comunidades de bajos recursos a acceder a subsidios de vivienda. Estos comités ahora tienen una relación cercana con Hábitat en la evaluación de las regiones dañadas por el sismo.
Mandan Equipos de Evaluacion a Comarcas Afectadas:

Poco después del terremoto, un equipo de evaluación de Hábitat para la Humanidad viajó a las zonas de Santiago, Talca, Puerto Saavedra, Los Angeles, Temuco, Curepto y Gualleco para evaluar los efectos del sismo en comunidades de bajos recursos. Las evaluaciones iniciales indican que el 100 por ciento de las viviendas construidas por Hábitat para la Humanidad Chile no han sufrido ningún daño. Sin embargo, algunas familias con las cuales Hábitat Chile estaba comenzando a establecer relación para apoyarles con la postulación a subsidios para realizar mejoramientos a sus viviendas, sí se vieron fuertemente afectadas...."
