CREATING STRONG FOUNDATIONS


Shelter is more than just a roof – it’s a home. It’s the foundation for life, for families, for communities, for peace.

When natural disasters and conflicts rob people of their homes, we can’t wave a magic wand to replace what was lost, but we can help create something new. We can provide people with the tools to start the process of their own recovery.

Your support provides shelter that protects families from burning heat, bitter cold, dangerous animals and disease, and so much more. A shelter creates a space where families can have privacy from the rest of the world, where they can feel safety and security in being together.

When people are plunged into crisis, normality is suspended. But good, quality shelter can cut through the chaos. It doesn’t just give people space to heal from physical and emotional trauma, but it gives them roots, roots that go far deeper than a simple tent peg.

Take a look at how we’re helping to build peace, one family at a time here.
