(Domes under License from InterShelter)
A few years after the Haiti earthquake, people are still living in sub-standard tents, under tarpaulins or plastic. These all deteriorate in the heat, wind, rain, dust or cold. Now there is a far superior choice, the revolutionary DOME.
This is a modular, quick-build, composite shelter that resists all the elements. It has four windows with a lockable door. People can now live in security and safeguard their belongings. The Domes are also used for field medical clinics, transitional shelters and for all areas where a safe, strong solution is needed fast!
The Global Humanitarian Manufacturing and Training Hub (2013-2018)
As witnessed by the number of natural disasters in this decade, such as the Asian tsunami, China’s earthquake, Katrina in New Orleans, Haiti’s earthquake and Pakistan’s monsoon, along with the crucial needs in developing countries worldwide, there exists an immense need for ready-made rapid deployment products for shelter, water purification, power and sanitation. This is well beyond today’s short-term solution of tents, tarpaulins and bottles of water being dropped by helicopters.
GFH has an exciting vision in the next 5-year plan (2013-2018), for the development of an innovation humanitarian-manufacturing hub that produces and distributes a range of products destined for developing countries. This unique environment is being created to add depth and breadth to the world by bringing key players in alliance and create a first of its kind, Humanitarian Hub. This will help build a future for Asia’s youth, and in turn bring health and healing to the children of developing countries.
Among the products to be available from the Hub are:
- Modular, pre-fabricated emergency and transitional housing;
- Water purification systems;
- Solar-power water heating;
- Solar-power generation for light and recharging battery storage;
- First-aid and health emergency kits;
- Sanitation systems for hygienic water disposal.
