Nepal: offer of assistance to build urgently needed bamboo shelters


Double shelter for altitude and winter

Double elevated shelter


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)
