Making humanitarian supplies in the field
Organisation: Field Ready
Type of grant: Scaling
WHAT HUMANITARIAN NEED IS BEING ADDRESSED?
Lack of supplies and long logistical chains in rapid onset disasters continues to be a significant challenge for humanitarian responders. We provide additive manufacturing (3D printing) in the ‘field’ where rapid, low cost supplies are needed most.
What’s the innovation?
Field Ready is transforming how aid is provided by moving manufacturing to where items are needed and training others in these skills, we have now demonstrated the potential in Haiti and Nepal in the health and WASH sectors, and have identified need in other responses and have developed our capacity to do so.
