  • Aug Update 2023

A Roller Ironer could be a game changer to increasing productivity

Getting the single use plastic onto the foil blankets is a critical part in the thermal survival blanket making process. The fusion of the plastic by volunteers takes up to 90 minutes! With the help of this machine we can reduce this manual labor time down to just 15mins! Your donation will help get this machine into action and directly impact on keeping more people warm. Thank you!
