Plumbers doing their bit to help people devastated by Christchurch Earthquake
Now volunteer plumbers are helping bring some order to the demolished city and help rebuild people’s homes so they have access to water again.
Over 60 plumbers and gasfitters have volunteered for the service and are restoring people’s plumbing systems or drains before Christchurch council steps in. The volunteers have currently spent more than 30 hours repairing homes affected by the earthquake.
Jay Wester, who is the managing director of LEAP, the plumbing company carrying out the scheme, said in a statement:
“Water and sewerage are two of the most urgent issues facing those affected by the earthquake in Christchurch… Our aim is to get one toilet, one sink and one shower for each home. This initiative is all providing an interim fix while insurance claims and building plans are approved.”
83 people have died as a result of the earthquake in Christchurch and hundreds of buildings and homes have been destroyed.
This is a great thing that the Christchurch plumbers are doing to help those devastated by the earthquake and they should all be commended for what they are doing.
