A slew of relief efforts poured into Haiti after the devastating 7.0-magnidtude earthquake all but destroyed the capital city of Port-au-Prince, but nothing popped up faster than the Doctors Without Borders pop up hospital.

OK, maybe it doesn’t really “pop” but the inflatable supports had a hospital on a soccer field in a matter of hours and provides the sterile environment necessary for medical work.

Of all the interesting shelters and pre fabricated housing and portable structures, this is the only one I’ve seen being used to actually help people. Sorry Blob House, you’re pretty but you just sit around.
