Shelter and NFI
Providing safe shelter
Over 5.8 people are in need of shelter inside Syria. The need for shelter is ever pressing. Through your donations, we are providing people with urgent safe shelter – from establishing displacement and refugee camps, to delivering the vital essentials that make life tolerable.
Giving shelter and hope
Millions have fled their homes – often at a moment’s notice – and are now living in makeshift shelters. Many others have no option but to sleep out in the open, with nothing but the clothes on their back and the little they could carry. Your donations are giving hope to the people who need hope most.
Providing comfort and safety
By carrying out regular needs assessments, our on-the-ground teams share vital information on the ever-changing needs of IDPs within northwest Syria. Then, through our rapidly deployed and highly effective shelter projects, we use your donations to establish safe, secure camps and provide people with the basics necessary to survive.
Answering every need in 2021
HIHFAD provides an immediate coordinated response in emergencies, with two large, strategic warehouses that are focused solely on emergency response. These warehouses are a lifeline when emergencies hit. HIHFAD ensure that pre-positioned supplies are always kept available in anticipation of future needs.
HIHFAD technical engineers design home rehabilitation projects and implement them in line with shelter cluster recommendations and coordinate the distribution and replacement of damaged tents to IDPs.
HIHFAD provides basic shelter support to both host communities and camps, with a wide variety of NFI distributed to IDPs ranging from hygiene kits, dignity kits, agriculture tool kits, shelter rehabilitation kits, water filtration kits, winterisation kits, school kits, and fuel for heating.
