UNHCR and Better Shelter

Tanzania is host to over 250,000 Burundian refugees who are facing a humanitarian crisis marked by economic decline, extreme food insecurity and a disease outbreak. The strong increase of forced displacement in this region has led to a shelter shortage and crisis, due to lack of funding within the international organizations.

Better Shelter provided assembly training with UNHCR and the shelters will be used by Burundian refugees, offering them a safer and more dignified place to stay.
