Afrika Umoja, an initiative tackling the COVID-19 threat in our home city, country and across Africa. The aim is to build temporary medical infrastructure within which, medical professionals can work in order to combat the coronavirus, in partnership with government, the private sector and local entrepreneurs.
The venture applies our design, construction, and project management expertise to building temporary medical infrastructure and supplying products within days/weeks, in potentially any location across Africa.
Africa Oil & Power, HOTT3D and Africa Energy Chamber, have partnered to create Afrika Umoja. The partnership brings together successful networks, transactions and partnerships that are at the helm of Africa’s growing energy industries, through marketing, communications, and outreach.
“The coronavirus pandemic has had a dramatic impact on companies in the events industry globally, but these highly skilled people and organisations can be redeployed. Instead of designing and building complex exhibition and conference infrastructure, we are now able to very quickly design and build temporary emergency medical infrastructure.
Afrika Umoja invites provincial and national governments and firms interested in building or funding temporary medical buildings and shelters to contact the team via Twitter @AfricaOilPower or Email. The organisation is also keen to welcome more vendors and suppliers to join the project, whether they are based in Cape Town or further afield.
