A displaced person is virtually invisible, their story rarely told, and their rights seldom honored. 42.9 million people across the world are at the risk of becoming invisible, living in substandard temporary housing solutions, forced out of their homes due to wars and natural disasters. Many millions more are at their permanent home sites but inadequately housed. Some are without any form of roof over their heads while others are living under tarps, in consumable tents suitable only for short-term use. These circumstances leave people vulnerable to poverty, disease, under-education and exploitation.
To provide humanitarian support to people in critical need of adequate shelter through advocacy, support and innovation.
