ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
A 100-bed hospital, built in 36 hours. Doctors Without Borders uses inflatable lifeboat fabric to set up portable, reusable trauma centers in disaster zones, including Haiti. Help support smart, innovative humanitarian action.
It’s like a cross between *M*A*S*H* and a Jump Castle!
Your analogy makes the whole situation seem like a lot more fun than it probably is. ;)
I hope it comes with an inflatable Hawkeye Pierce!
MÃ©decins Sans FrontiÃ¨res is one of my favorite charities.. I was gonna donate to them ANYWAYS but this just adds to it :) Canadians can donate at MSF.ca
What these people do is incredible. I just made a donation, thanks for reminding me!
Doctors Without Borders is having a Fundraiser Party in San Francisco on Saturday Jan 16th. It’s at The Verdi Club at 2424 Mariposa @ Potrero from 6pm to midnight. Here’s a Laughing Squid link with a description. Suggested donation $10 or more, expecting 200-500 people, lots o’ bands.
PIH also has deep roots there already:
This is exactly why we need to invest in Zeppelins.
I mean, airship hospitals would be really helpful in situations like this.
Yes! There’s a sad lack of zeppelins in the skies these days anyway.
