Green Container International Aid Shelters Housing

This post is also available in: Française

Green Container Mission: To provide emergency shelter and long-term planning strategies to displaced populations made homeless from global catastrophes (Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Typhoons, Tsunamis, Volcano Eruptions and Floods).

Green Container are appealing for abandoned containers to convert into emergency shelters for disaster zones such as Haiti as the hurricane season starts right now in June. It is claimed that 2 million Haitians are homeless and live in fear of traditional permanent building structures. The result is that many choose to sleep in tents in front of their concrete houses, known as ‘concrete phobia’.

If you own unused or abandoned containers, (of the estimated 17 million) or know someone who does, get in touch and donate them now!
