Making Every Shelter Feel More Like A Home

Of the world’s 82.4 million forcefully displaced, millions live in shelters — but the shelters they are given don't last. Families are effectively forced to camp for years with materials that last for months.

Not to mention that millions of girls and women will now have many of their rights stolen. This is precisely what causes displacement/refugees; those fleeing persecution…
