Shelter/NFI and Protection
What We Do
In situations of displacement, there is always loss of personal property, very often people flee with little more than the clothes they are wearing, Shelter and basic NFIs provide the bedrock of recovery from the shock of displacement and offer early relief from disaster, without this foundation, the chances of protecting basic human dignity are reduced, health is compromised, the ability to cope with poor nutrition is diminished
Somalia faces a serious crisis, enormous internal displacement and refugees’ returnees, DBG is on the forefront line of implementing sector programs to protect and support these individuals and encourage peace through nonviolent conflict resolution, 89,049 households were supported by DBG in the shelter and Nonfood items since 2004
DBG programs provide Shelter and settlements contributing to the security, safety, and well-being of both displaced and non-displaced affected populations and promote recovery and reconstruction where possible.
