Our partner, Arup, has been providing technical expertise to our programs in Australia for almost 4 years, and we are beyond grateful for all the knowledge and experience their team brings.

We grow more substantial businesses and local economies to build disaster resilience, and Arup's contribution of highly specialised skills has been invaluable to the communities we serve. This partnership is a commitment to leveraging specialist expertise and delivering it where it's most needed.

Their estimated contribution of more than $100,000 worth of services to our programs is a testament to their dedication to helping communities rebuild and prosper after natural disasters.

The team of Arup specialists, including quantity surveyors, hydrologists, engineers, and environmental scientists, are dedicated to providing their expertise to help communities.

We want to extend a special thank you to Michelle Cheah, Melanie Grills, Trish Sunga, Edward Rowe, Madison Downey, Frankie Coen, Justin Peachey, Michael James, Angel Z., Gaenor Gibbs-Harris, Annabel Kerr, Joshua Atkinson, Vincent Chan Kun Wa and Christopher Serrano for their dedication and expertise. The impact of ABV's mission is amplified due to their contributions.
