In February 2023, several strong earthquakes struck southern Türkiye and northwest Syria.
Millions lost their homes, and over 59,000 people died.
We shipped 5000 shelters to partners within weeks, supported by the IKEA Foundation.

Refuge for Sudanese
safety in Chad
Months after the outbreak of violence in Sudan, and over 350,000 Sudanese had crossed the border seeking refuge in Chad.
Responding to the emergency at the border,
UNHCR installed the first Relief Housing Units to shelter the growing number of refugees.
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.
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.
With our shelters serving as classrooms and libraries, partners ensure continuing education activities in camps.
