This week’s meeting

Our talk this week (on Monday 13 November) was not engineering-related. David Glover (an ex-civil engineer) of Shelterbox gave us very interesting talk on the Shelterbox organisation and the difficulties it experiences in reaching affected people in the disaster areas. Shelterbox no longer confines itself to the well known green plastic box with a tent and other shelter equipment but also supplies a DIY shelter pack that contains tarpaulins and tools for roofing and repair of damaged structures.
