iBousai Evacuee Support Kits for Wellness and Lifestyle

While it’s certainly not pleasant to think about future disasters in Japan (or anywhere else), they do happen, and with them come instant problems with displaced people, broken infrastructure, and sanitation needs. Since we cannot prevent most of these problems, we can only do our best to alleviate the symptoms, and the difference between the aftereffects of the earthquakes in Japan as opposed to Haiti can be summed up in one sentence: Wealth is Health.

Thus, the creative iBousai emergency kits from the Ritsumeikan University Research Center for Disaster Mitigation of Urban Cultural Heritage (yes, that’s the name) are simple solutions to very First World problems. In fact, most would be seen as luxuries during the even the best times in the Third World.

The iBousai come in four varieties currently being developed:
– Kirei (Beautification): Essential oils and other products for women
– Miru (Medical Care): Gauze, alcohol, and other wound treatment
– Kaeru (Going Home): Maps, mini radio, and items to assist in travel
– Yoru (Nighttime): Socks, whistle, and other items needed in the dark

Additional products in the kits are soaps, LED lights, mobile alarms, dry shampoo, and other toiletries.

For future disasters, these types of kits are not only compact and easy to ship, but they are designed to improve the quality of life for people living in extenuating circumstances. It might seem trivial to receive essential oils during a tragedy, but the goal of the project is to be useful for both physical and mental health, and that’s an admirable goal.

    Amenities in Vilamoura’s golf resorts and motels are equally remarkable. The new 5 star Tivoli Victoria hotel, for case in point, around seems to be the Victoria golfing course and supplies every thing from a wellbeing spa and gymnasium to a buying concourse and conference amenities. There are not a single but two large class restaurants as effectively as each inside and exterior swimming pools.
