Providing Shelter and a Refuge in Tigray

Samaritan’s Purse is building emergency shelters in the Tigray region of Ethiopia for hundreds of families who were forcibly displaced from their homes due to armed conflict. In the past month, their staff designed a basic emergency shelter that can largely be built from local materials. After securing a site, teams started construction in a nearby city. Since construction began in early April, Samaritan’s Purse shelter teams have built over 700 emergency shelters. Soon hundreds of families will begin moving into these shelters and finally have private spaces of their own.
