Shelter is About Human Dignity, Safety and Privacy

After 10 years of crises, life is harder than ever for displaced Syrian. Since 2011, millions of Syrians have been forced to flee their homes to seek safety as refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and beyond, or remain displaced inside Syria. As the crises continues, hope is fading. With the devastating impact of the pandemic and increasing poverty, every day is an emergency for Syrians forced to flee.

HHRD provides caravan homes for Syrian families in Jordan, home improvements for Palestinian families in Jordan, and shelter homes for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh

In Jordan, over 660,000 men, women and children are currently trapped in exile. Approximately 80 % live outside camps, while 128,000 have found sanctuary in refugee camps such as Za’atari and Azraq. Many have arrived with limited means to cover even basic needs, and those who could at first rely on savings or support from host families are now increasingly in need of help. In Jordan, about four out of five Syrian refugees were living under the national poverty line even before the pandemic.

To meet the shelter needs of Syrian refugees, HHRD has, so far, provided over 1100 micro homes also known as “Caravan Homes”.  We use high-quality materials known for their endurance for highest and lowest temperatures which includes: galvanized steel, insulation sheets, appropriate wooden doors, and solid steel bases.  The Caravan of Hope home is designed on the interior to resemble regular homes with two bedrooms (one bedroom in Za’atari camp) and separate utility rooms that serve as a kitchen and a bathroom.  Each home is supplied with the necessary water and electricity connections. 

Shelter Homes of Hope for Rohingya Refugees in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh

The Rohingya are stateless Muslim minority in Myanmar and have fled the region due to targeted violence.

 

Six homes for Rohingya refugees can be sponsored for a donation level of $5,040.

 

HHRD has provided more than 4000 shelter homes to Rohingya families in Cox’s Bazar Bangladesh. Each home consists of two rooms along with a balcony. The structure is made with bamboo and tarpaulin that can sustain high winds and rains. Homes are provided with solar powered electric fixtures, such as fans and bulbs and can house a family of six members.

Rohingya refugees fled violence in Myanmar at a staggering rate in 2017 with numbers crossing the one million.  At the peak of the crisis, thousands were crossing into Bangladesh daily.  Most walked for days through jungles and mountains, or braved dangerous sea voyages across the Bay of Bengal.  They arrived exhausted, hungry and sick-in need of international protection and humanitarian assistance. 

The vast majority reaching Bangladesh were women and children, with more than 40 % under age 12.  Many others are elderly people requiring additional aid and protection.  With an uncertain future, the Rohingya remain in an extremely perilous situation.  These refugees remain tremendously vulnerable, living in exceedingly challenging conditions, and dependent on aid for their survival.
