Giving them New Hope: Baitulmaal responds to the needs of refugees and internally displaced by providing shelter
During emergencies and disasters, Baitulmaal’s initial response is to provide temporary shelter – tents and tarps to affected families. A long-term solution for displaced families is providing caravans (mobile homes).
The Shelter Program for displaced families, a project initiated by Baitulmaal AHED began operating in Pakistan in 2010 after the floods disaster that occurred that year. The main objective of this program is to provide temporary and long-term housing to families displaced by conflict and natural disasters, and keep their family structure tight. To date, we have provided temporary shelter to over 500 families. Baitulmaal recognizes that it is crucial to quickly settle displaced families into temporary shelters.
Baitulmaal’s Shelter Program has been implemented in Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon, Pakistan, and Nepal to help hundreds of families who have had to leave their homes or countries.
