7 new medical containers on larger ship for refugees
10 February 2017
Hospitainer provides 7 new medical containers that will be used alongside previously delivered containers, on a larger ship, the Vos Prudence, than the one before; the Bourbon Argos. This new ship can accommodate up to 900 refugees, who are picked up from the Mediterranean Sea.
The medical facilities will be used by one of the largest NGOs worldwide, to treat hundreds of refugees who tried to make the perilous crossing to Europe, risking their lives. They are often picked up from small makeshift boats carrying far too many people. A large part of the refugees are undercooled and have other medical complications, which makes instant treatment in good medical facilities vital.
