Season’s Greetings…

…and wishes for a happy new year!

As we near the end of 2017, we must sadly conclude that this year has, once again, seen a devastatingly huge number of people displaced from their homes as a result of conflict, natural disasters and persecution. We would like to thank all our partners around the world for their boundless energy and compassion in helping us to help people who have lost everything.

This year, as well as refining and improving the design of our shelter, we have offered temporary homes for people in countries including Niger, Italy and Sint Maarten. We have also evaluated new uses for our shelters, which have acted as water distribution kiosks in Senegal, temporary homes for returnees in Iraq and child friendly spaces in Peru.

We have had the opportunity to present our work and our story at the Embassy of Sweden in Washington DC, at Design Korea in Seoul, Helsinki Design Week and in Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum, to mention just a few.

Thank you for great support – and we wish you a peaceful holiday season and a happy new year for 2018.
