Work was paused on the construction of the new ICM building in April due to COVID-19 and its restrictions. In addition to health risk, because the government imposed a 3:00 PM curfew, workers had to start making their way back home by 1 PM which meant the work day was cut short.
EMAUSA’s donation enabled the ICM building committee to purchase materials (sand, cement, steel rods, etc.), fund the molding of over 1000 cement bricks, and pay part of the contractor's fee. According to Pastor Gwole, the fund is exhausted, but work with materials that are available will begin as soon as restrictions are relaxed. The Government extended the curfew to 9:00 PM, then put it back to 6:00 PM due to an increase in new confirmed cases. The work will be mainly to complete the laying of approximately 3000 bricks on one of the longer sides of the building to complete the superstructure before the roof work can begin.
The immediate need now is to purchase additional steel rods and cement and pay the contractor his scheduled installment.
