Our work in protection

Whether in response to displacement caused by natural disasters or violent conflict, we have supported missions in some of the most severe crises in the world.
One of the critical functions of our shelters is ensuring that its residents are safe and protected so they can live in peace in an otherwise chaotic situation. Our shelters have lockable doors to maintain privacy and to prevent the occurrence of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV).
