This starts with improving morale by empowering families at risk
to be proactive in shelter preparedness
by assembling their own
"personal" RSK shelter kit
to be able to build a strong and secure shelter quickly and efficiently when a disaster occurs
to be able to easily repair, maintain and upgrade their shelter
Providing a well ventilated comfortable
that encourages "personalisation" of their shelter by allowing the family to maintain and upgrade their shelter over time.
Unlike traditional shelters the walls of the RSK do not support the roof
so they are easily filled in with available materials such as earth bags, bamboo lattice and mud
which, together with the roof insulation, gives an additional feeling of security and well being for the shelter occupants
The RSK roof frame is also ideal for hanging partitions
that provide much needed privacy and feelings of well being for the shelter occupants
and also hanging mosquito nets
for vector control.
