ABC News recently ran an item about PODS being provided as temporary housing for some bushfire victims that lost their houses and will need some time to rebuild. Providing “recovery pods” is a joint initiative of the Minderoo Foundation and the New South Wales Government. $5m has been allocated.
The DBRC is not considering funding PODs because of their high per unit cost ($50,000), but it may be useful for Rotarians involved in bushfire recovery to know about the PODS, where they are being deployed, and how they are being funded.
