There are more than 33 million homeless living in cold winter regions all over the world. They have no protection from the life threatening cold.
In 2013, almost 9,000 families had been rendered homeless from communal riots in North Indian town of Muzaffarnagar. In this community alone, more than 50 children died when the night temperatures fell to near freezing.
After the 2013 incident, we at billionBricks decided to take action. We innovated a shelter to protect homeless families from the harsh conditions they endure while living on the streets in winter.
winterHYDE is a life saving fully insulated, lightweight shelter that provides maximum privacy for women and fits a family of five. It enables a single person, tool less installation within 15 minutes and does not need any anchoring.
