Our work in health

Our shelters serve as primary health clinics in refugee camps, as triaging rooms, hospital wards, vaccination centres and as supporting infrastructure to hospitals. The shelters meet high-quality standards, enabling medical NGOs to address a range of issues. They provide access to basic health services, promoting short and long-term mental and physical wellbeing.
