Relief Housing Unit (RHU)

A resistant shelter that arrives with all parts in a flatpack and is easy to assemble for immediate safety and dignity in emergency response.

All in a box

The RHU is the last safety net when nothing else works. Residents can move into a dignified shelter from start.

Versatile

Multi-sectoral use in different contexts and climates. Can be upgraded overtime to prolong lifespan.

Dignified, safe, temporary

While temporary, the RHU offers conflict and disaster affected families a higher level of safety, protection and dignity.

The RHU is delivered with complete parts ready for assembly when removed from the flatpack. It is equipped with a lightweight roof and wall panels, a lockable door and solar powered lamp and charger. The configured all-in-one flatpack allows for an immediate response effort where the shelter can be received, assembled and occupied by residents on the same day.

The assembly parts are standardised and hassle-free, making projects easy to plan and implement on time. The shelter features ensure a high degree of protection and provide versatility in the type of occupancy, including basic family accommodation, health, education and other communal activities.
