As German Red Cross (DRK) Assistance, we have access to a wide range of technical equipment, all around the world. These resources enable us to create fully functioning medical infrastructures in the middle of nowhere -including medical specialists at German Red Cross (DRK) level as you would expect.
We set up medical facilities - from a simple sanitation tent to a field hospital with 2 operating theatres and 90 beds.
We provide a safe water supply.
We undertake personnel management - ranging from local temporary workers to medical specialists.
We safeguard a hygienic food supply - in extreme cases with ready-to-eat provisions.
We implement boundary control measures and take appropriate actions (e.g. reduction of breeding areas) and protection of the camp from disease carriers (e.g. rodents).
