    We were lucky that we have good bamboo market here where we can find dry bamboo, the electricity also back to normal a few weeks after the earthquake. You can use manual drill to make hole in the bamboo. At that time, within 8 month the project able to make 12.250 T-shelter. The community themselves who built the shelter with the supervision of trained Indonesian Red Cross volunteers of course.

    Hi, I’m an architecture student and i find this video really interesting and rich in knowledges. I have so many questions regarding the design and materials. I am curious of the use of genteng tiles instead of other lighter material, and i have some other questions too. Where or who can i ask about all these? Congrats and good luck anyway on this wonderful project. I am hoping to join similiar projects, as i am too a youth red cross member. All the very best for red cross.
