Shelters for Nomads

We are raising money for shelters for nomadic shepherds in Inner Mongolia. According to the local Red Cross, between 80 and 100 nomadic families need these shelters. Floods and lightning from recent storms destroyed their homes. We hope to give at least 10 yurts. Each shelter costs about $1,000. The following photos show yurts that were given by our organization 5 years ago.

This is a completed yurt. The Chinese characters read: Inner Mongolia Red Cross.

This is a photo of a family putting up their yurt shelter.

Thank you!
