Delivering emergency shelters from EU to Türkiye

Immediately following the powerful earthquake in Türkiye, DG Echo mobilised shelters from its rescEU stock to support people who lost their homes.

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.
