SHELTER & NFI

Having shelter provides one with a feeling of safety and privacy. It is a space that provides protection from cold, humidity, heat, rain, wind, and other risks for human health. The shelter also contains all of a people’s belongings and ensures that they can live their everyday life in dignity.

Conflicts and natural disasters force people to leave their safe homes and flee in search of shelter far from dangers. Moving front lines, unstable economic and social situation in regions make it impossible to settle down safely in one place. People who flee their homes as a result of war must leave their homes, belongings and lives behind.

For many people, the provision of non-food items constitutes necessary aid, which improves their health, safety, privacy, and dignity. All of this is necessary to provide the people in IDP’s camps with safe living conditions.

 

 

WHAT DOES THE POLISH HUMANITARIAN ACTION DO?

We undertake actions that provide shelter and base necessities to those who are in urgent need. We provide the most basic items of everyday use, such as plastic sheeting, cooking sets, blankets, jerry cans, sleeping mats, sanitary items and shelter. To people who were forced to leave their houses, we distribute kits to build temporary shelters.

To provide access to safe shelter and non-food items we:

  • provide people with the materials to build shelters (tarpaulin, tents, construction materials)
  • we rebuild and repair houses (by using locally-available materials and technologies, but we also improve the houses’ resistance to natural disasters)
  • we distribute products of everyday need (containing basic NFI kits, cleaning supplies, and hygiene products)
