Tents are a staple of emergency response. Wherever children are forced from their homes by conflict or a natural disaster, UNICEF’s white tents are a safe haven.
For years, UNICEF’s tents have been the gold standard. People like you have helped make them even better. With your support, our teams worked with manufacturers to redesign them. They’re now stronger, lighter and more comfortable than ever before.
The prototype had to pass exhaustive tests. It started in labs – with wind tunnels and rain machines. Then they were sent to UNICEF teams all over the world.
In Uganda, they were tested for extreme heat. In the Philippines, for humidity. They were even sent to some of the coldest places on earth, to make sure they stayed cosy.
The outcome? A better experience for children. Whether they’re used as a school, a health clinic or a temporary home, the redesigned tents will help keep children safe in emergencies. They even have some innovative extras like solar kits and electricity points.
