LANTERN Emergency tents / Emergency tents

LANTERN Emergency tents

Except for a shelter, the refugees also need their soul to be soothed, but the former designs have rarely concerned about their mental health.
In some Eastern countries, people use lanterns to pray for the victims and express blessings for both the living and the dead, "Wish To the deceased rest in peace, living strong!"
This tent has borrowed the structure and the form of traditional lanterns. It can express wishes and empathy to the survival and respect to the dead.
It is also easy to move and transport. The big spring makes the tent convertible. Moreover, being compressed, the tent can be used to store disaster relief materials.
