developing practical shelter solutions for disaster relief
Both these shelters were recently built by Red Cross volunteers using the IFRC shelter kit.
Key advantages for NEPAL of this new type of reciprocal frame shelter:
1. EFFICIENCY ( uses 33% less bamboo, 33% less transport cost)
2. RAPID BUILD ( requires no special skills so any family can build)
3. INSULATION (cooler in Nepal summer or warmer at altitude)
"Today, there is still no frame available for supporting the thousands of tarpaulins that are delivered by aid agencies when disaster strikes"
It is the only shelter kit that provides everything a family needs to build a dignified shelter with their tarpaulin.
