This survival barrel concept is based around the needs of people affected by floods where they are struck by poverty, left homeless and have no means to store their possessions. It allows for a watertight storage area that is clean, accessible and easily transportable on land and in flood water. It is a free rotating mono-wheel, where the centre remains static, leaving the outer detachable rims to rotate on small replaceable bearings. This allows for goods to be stored upright in the centre and surrounding compartments, maximising the use of empty space. The kit can carry food and water, dry clothing, medicine and shelter.
