Gifts for Shelter
Keep Refugee Families Safe

Blankets and Sleeping Mats for 10 Families

Families forced from their homes leave everything they own behind. This gift provides warmth and comfort as soon as they reach a refugee camp.

For just HK$1,500, you can provide the warmth and comfort of blankets and sleeping mats for 10 families that might otherwise sleep on the cold hard ground.

A UNHCR Tent for Family

For refugee families who have been forced to flee their homes, lack of access to safe and warm shelter is a genuine risk, as many are forced to live in shelters not equipped to be waterproof or weatherproof.

A UNHCR family tent for HK$4,100 is built to be weatherproof in both hot and cold weather conditions, and will last for a year, with room for five to sleep and to live, so that they can be kept safe as soon as they arrive at a refugee camp.

A Temporary Refugee Housing Unit for a Family

This all-weather, temporary refugee housing unit was designed precisely to help refugees fleeing their homes. It is made of a lightweight steel frame, roof and wall panels, and it has doors and windows, a floor covering, solar energy system (lamp and telephone charger) and a strong anchoring system to keep tethering safely to the ground.

For HK$11,170, a family of five does not need to sleep on the cold ground as soon as they arrive at a refugee camp. There are lights to switch on at night in the unit too.
