They are killing themselves with shovels


The January quake demonstrates what happens when poor people are allowed to make concrete using shovels on the ground. Thousands died from the crushing effects of poor mixing methods.
We sit comfortably on foundations that use the best tools possible. Why do we allow these people to continue to kill themselves with their own shovels?
The issue should ignite a discussion on how we can cure the world’s poorest concrete.
