Bolivia floods 2009
" To provide a new method of emergency shelter construction, the bamboo RSK, that will empower displaced families and aid agencies to be able to better prepare and respond to disasters worldwide "
To achieve this we have recently completed a series of RSK disaster preparedness training programs for communities at risk.
This has worked well in Myanmar where the RSK lightweight kits are easily carried by families displaced by recurring floods.
We have also completed training workshops for field staff of shelter organisations to build and use the emergency and transitional RSK shelters in large scale disaster responses.
Our next objective is to set up an RSK shelter pilot to assess the utility of RSK shelters in the hands of displaced families.
