Default Humanihut

These are great!

Humanihut is a start-up company from Australia that has developed an all-in-one emergency shelter for refugees and disaster victims that can be set up in only five minutes. The Humanihut refugee shelters are more than just basic housing. Showers, toilets, electricity, and laundry facilities are also integrated into each one.

BG , very interesting , thank-you for that .

However shipping containers are heavy and not really suitable for
air transport and many disasters require a rapid response .

I think yurts might be a better idea. Lighter than container shipping or module housing.

Every few years some organization comes up with a similar idea, they tin cup it around, maybe get to the protege stage and they fail.

Seems nice, pallet capable 10 per, airfreight them in, 2-4 man carry able, etc. in this situation plumbing is built in. This one will likely fail.

Why? Tents are still the way NGOs are going to go to reduce out of pocket costs. You can buy a lot more tents in 40' containers, replace then every 6 months because of UV damage than use these. Centralized sanitation will also be cheaper.

You can talk all you want about long term cost saving, especially if these are cleaned and reused but it still come to out of pocket expenses.
