The HELP home can be functional without access to electricity or running water. It can be equipped with solar panels, a composting toilet and a gravity-fed water system. It is also ready to plug into utilities if they are available. When the unit has served its purpose, it can be moved somewhere else or be repurposed as a guest house or shed.

IADDIC Shelters - une alternative aux plastiques bleus de l'ONU - 1,5 milliard d'êtres humains n'ont pas un abri adéquat - Whether due to a natural disaster (such as earthquake, hurricanes, typhoon or tsunami) or economic tragedy (the kind that produces a slum village, shanty town, favela or other kind of slum), hundreds of millions of people throughout the world do not have adequate shelter. At IADDIC Shelters, our goal is to build shelters for the “houseless” people of the world. But we don’t build just any kind of shelter. We build instant shelter units that are better than mere temporary housing. Depending on the configuration options, these portable emergency shelter units aren’t just temporary buildings, they’re semi-permanent housing.

Two doorway “Life Elements” can be connected to create a corridor between two ‘inflated’ spaces allowing for growth of the structure.
