Support families in Türkiye and Syria

With support from the IKEA Foundation, we are providing 5,000 shelters to families affected by the earthquake. But with needs growing every day, we are calling on additional support to help save lives.

In collaboration with local and global partners, Better Shelter provides shelter as temporary homes for displaced families to live in safely, and infrastructure to promote improved health, protection and education.

We offer safe and dignified temporary shelter for use in conflicts, after disasters and to combat homelessness.

Our structures serve as health facilities to support existing infrastructure, and as temporary services in camps and settlements.

With our shelters serving as classrooms and libraries, partners ensure the continuation of education activities in camps.

Our structures can be turned into private, safe spaces for community development and early childhood development.
