Provide the tarpaulin and plastic sheet.
UNHCR also provides materials such as plastic sheeting and matting that can be used to make a simple shelter to protect refugee families and shelter them from harsh weather. Additionally, in more protracted situations, we provide the displaced with the materials they need to build a home themselves under self-help schemes.
Provide Family Tent
UNHCR provide an emergency tent to a family who have just fled anywhere in the world. Shelter is a vital survival mechanism in times of crisis or displacement. It is also key to restoring personal security, self-sufficiency and dignity.
A safe and durable housing solution for people forced to flee.
The Refugee Housing Unit (RHU) is a self-standing, sustainable and durable shelter, designed through a collaboration between UNHCR, the social enterprise Better Shelter and the IKEA Foundation. The RHUs have panels to make up bedrooms, a kitchen area, a lockable door and a LED lamp which provides more than six hours of light.
