Upcycled Oil Drum Survival Kit Doubles as A Stove [Pics]

Care package provides warmth and food for up to 30 people.

Japanese designer Hikaru Imamura, has turned an oil drum into a survival kit that can sustain up to 30 people for two days. The ‘Heat Rescue Disaster Recovery’ kit is inspired by the tragic earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan last year. The tragic incident killed as many as 20,000 people and left most people homeless and without sustenance.

The care package features necessities such as food, water, towels, work gloves, and utensils. The oil drum not only stores the contents, but can also be transformed into a stove to boil water, cook hot food, and keep warm.
