SadieShelter Solace exists to provide cost-efficient swiftly assembled structures that will significantly and immediately improve the conditions of security, shelter, sanitation and solace for vulnerable victims of traumatic displacement.  I am raising money to help Darla get to India to be able to provide these shelters to victims such as the Rohingya who are suffering right now! These shelters costs less than tents used now! Each one allows for 4-6 people for up to 2 years. They are SECURE, insulated, bullet resistant, and weather protected.  Not only are they far superior they can be built within 15 minutes on site by one woman with NO TOOLS! Its truly amazing! We just want to to help human kind by offering protection and peace for the mind, body and soul of people enduring severe crisis, confusion, danger and loss. A moment of SOLACE from any storm to offer the dignity and compassion everyone deserves. Darla has done the hard work engineering and creating this- now we need to help her simply get to India. She has everything set up- meetings with the purchasing agencies -FEMA, UNHCR, IFRC in 3 Indian States (Chennai, Kolkata, and Bangalore)  which are extremely hard to get.  The grant she was promised is now delayed and she needs our help to raise enough to go.. ....It is critical she gets to India in January!!!  I have known Darla since grade school, she is a wonderful friend and engineer!   Her company is Sadie Shelters and we will disburse 100% of the funds raised directly to the organization Sadie Shelters Home Kits and Systems, Inc. You can visit her website or message me with any questions!  Please help!  Even a little will help and then post and share!!! Thank you for considering!!!
