We are supporting these groups through financial and technical support. We are also focusing on providing shelter to the city’s poorest communities whose homes have been destroyed or badly damaged.
“We have many years of experience of upgrading sub-standard shelters and it’s vital that we move quickly before the wet, cold weather arrives in the coming months,” Concern’s Humanitarian advisor Dom Hunt said. “As long as we can get funds, we have the staff and the resources to make an immediate real difference to alleviate suffering.”
To achieve this, we have been distributing weatherproofing and shelter kits. The kits contain basic items such as tarpaulin and wood and enable vulnerable households to make temporary fixes to their properties. It is extremely important that families are able to make these repairs to their homes before cold, wet winter sets in.
