In-pictures: Turkey: from the factory to the field

During the last Red Cross Red Crescent partnership meeting, hosted by Turkish Red Crescent, participants visit the TRC tent factory in Ankara. 60 thousands tents are always available in case of need for national natural disaster. TRC staff is also testing some new materials for tents that must resist in tough conditions and extreme temperature. Below some pictures of all the process to make a tent.
