weatherHYDE shelters for Bangladesh crisis refugees
More than 370,000 Rohingya muslims, who are considered by the United Nations as the “most persecuted minority group in the world,” have fled to Bangladesh to escape extreme violence from their home country, Myanmar. Many of them are women and children, and they require assistance from people who are able to give it, such as yourselves. The refugee camps' capacity is exhausted, thousands are suffering in makeshift shelters, and many have no shelter at all. Know more about the crisis here.
The aim of this appeal was to bring 100 weatherHYDE shelters to Bangladesh. Each tent can provide shelter for a family of five. weatherHYDE is the world's only reversible all season tent designed to save the lives of the homeless and vulnerable living in extreme weather.
This campaign is now over, and 100 weatherHYDE shelters have been sent to Bangladesh. Thank you for your invaluable support! If you would like to continue providing shelter to the homeless and displaced, click here.
