The Texas House of Representatives is expected to adopt a state resolution Wednesday (May 3) that honors BUILD, a Texas A&M University student organization that constructs medical clinics made from shipping containers.
“They are now in used in Honduras, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Guatemala and other countries. They are helping hundreds of thousands of people and are saving lives.
“We are grateful that this accomplishment is being recognized by the Texas House of Representatives and hope that this recognition will provide greater awareness to BUILD so we can help more people in need of medical services in developing countries.”
Wolken says the group continues to raise more than $100,000 in donations to fund construction of the containers, which once completed are fully equipped with electricity, plumbing and insulation.
