Mini Warehousing is proud to announce a charity project called Containers 2 Clinics. The project involves the use of storage containers being retrofit into a clinic where 3rd world nations can deploy them in remote areas to accommodate women and children getting quality healthcare in their community.

Containers to Clinics (C2C) is a non-profit, charitable initiative that seeks to improve the health of women and children by providing access to primary healthcare through networks of converted shipping container clinics.
Clinics are staffed by local health professionals in-country. C2C’s approach to rural medical care is designed to strengthen the entire healthcare system of a country from the bottom up by building capacity to treat illness locally. C2C clinics focus on improving the lives of women and children through vaccinations, safe pregnancy and delivery, and health education. C2C’s model allows for standard design and operations and for replication across regions.
The project is headed up by the founder Elizabeth Sheehan who has worked around the world in humanitarian efforts to increase the availability of healthcare to developing nations.
Mini Warehousing is proud to have been a part of this project. The clinics will be used to help some of the many people who are dying due to easily preventable diseases.
Recent WHO statistics were released which exposed the human cost to this lack of Medical care:
“Every day 1500 women die from pregnancy- or childbirth-related complications and just under twenty-five thousand children under the age of five die from diarrhea, pneumonia, and other preventable diseases.”
We wish Containers 2 Clinics the best possible future as they tackle this great humanitarian effort.
