French term or phrase: glaciere
I found "cooler" and "ice storage room" for this term on Termium, but I'm not sure what the right word would be in this context: "Un refrigerateur sera donne au centre de sante de (African village) et des glacieres, accumulateurs de froid et consommables seront distribues dans tous les centres." I've also heard the term "cold room." These are small health centres in poor areas plagued by violent rebel incursions; the centres are run by a humanitarian organization. Thanks, Karen

cool boxes


Explanation:
If it is a small portable device for keeping food cold then "cool box" or if preferred "cooler" but this could be confused with the American term for a small fridge
