UNHCR and Better Shelter

In September 2021, mainstream media, UN agencies and humanitarian organisations reported on the increased arrival of refugees, migrants and asylum seekers upon Italian shores. In response to this influx, UNHCR provided 81 units of the Relief Housing Unit (RHU) to the local implementing partners throughout Italy. The RHUs will be used as part of the country and EU’s response and reception services, possibly as temporary shelters, community centres, reception units and offices.
