About

More people than ever are being displaced by conflict, disasters and climate change. Donating part of a Better Shelter will make you part of our work.

We are a Swedish humanitarian social enterprise dedicated to improving the lives of people who have been forced to flee war and disasters. We develop affordable temporary shelters to give families a dignified, safer life away from home.

Together with leading UN agencies and humanitarian organizations, including the UNHCR, the Red Cross, UNICEF and IOM, we ensure that some of the world’s most vulnerable people have a space to live, not just to survive.

Our shelters serve as temporary homes for displaced families around the world, including in Syria, Colombia, Bangladesh and Bosnia, but also as health clinics, Covid-19 isolation wards and community buildings.

So far, we have delivered more than 65,000 shelters to 70 countries in Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
