Parachute Shelter Provides Immediate Relief Aid and A Shelter to Hard-to-Reach Locations

After natural disaster struck, immediate actions are needed to provide temporary shelters for homeless victims. However, there are victims located in difficult-to-reach locations which make it impossible to bring necessary aid delivered and distributed in short period of time. Parachute shelter design tries to answer this problem by providing a dual-use parachute.

Why parachutes? Well, it makes sense that usually after natural disaster, the roads and other infrastructure are damaged which prevent rapid provision of shelter and aid materials to the victims. Using Parachute Shelter, it would be possible to deliver and distribute immediate relief aid and a shelter at the same time.
