Partnership: Healthy Housing for the Displaced

In June 2018 Extremis was invited to partner with the Healthy Housing for the Displaced project being run by Bath University: www.hhftd.net

This project aims to improve the living conditions in refugee camps by designing low cost and easy to construct housing that will moderate extremes of temperature and ensure the privacy, comfort and dignity of residents – very much in line with Extremis’ own ethos.

Extremis has taken the opportunity to trial a HuSh™Lite shelter for use in Azraq camp in Jordan.

Sebastián Smart, Executive Director, TECHO Charity UK

I’m writing to thank you and your team for all the effort that you have made to develop the Dominican Republic project, from the incredible design of the houses, the fundraising, the coordination with the DR team and the Valientes.

All this incredible work will come true in a couple of weeks. The good thing is that some of the poorest families in Latin America, those that are usually living without electricity, sewage and water, will work alongside Extremis and TECHO volunteers to have a new start, with a new house.

Just wanted to say thanks to all your team. You had been amazing!
