News Item - GEMCO Ramp - 28th Aug 2008

GEMCOGEMCO staff and contractors worked miracles to complete their first wheelchair ramp at Angurugu, Groote Eylandt in time for the official MJD Foundation launch on 30th Aug 2008.  The factors involving a 1600mm high house, costly sourcing of materials and challenging foundations, highlight the complexity of these projects in such a remote area.  The importance of these projects is critical to support the growing number of MJD sufferers who are progressing to the more severe form of the disease.
