The project is an urgent emergency response aiming at improving the living conditions of highly vulnerable and deeply under-served Palestinian families.

The targeted communities are affected by the persisting difficult environment, continuously challenging protection threats (including lack of privacy, especially for women in their rooms and in WASH facilities), restriction of movements, and restricted access to basic service especially for people with disabilities.
The action includes the rehabilitation and/or upgrading of 63 shelters reducing the exposure of targeted beneficiaries to both man-made and natural disasters, weather conditions, risk of water borne diseases and health problems. The renovation works will include also, when needed, WASH infrastructure in the shelters.
