Progression of the Shelter

Since 2017

Opened in 2018


Since the Build

The shelter was fully constructed by 2018, with day services opening shortly thereafter. After a campaign to fund a solar power system to ensure access to a sustainable energy source, the shelter was furnished by January 2020, and in spring 2020 we were able to finally open our doors to the first residents of the shelter.

Current Needs

  1. Owning a van that facilitates all shelter activities and transport needs

  2. A fully-fledged emergency unit.

  3. More beds and bedding to equip the rooms that are not fully furnished.

  4. Paint for the children’s room.

  5. Set up our own farm to cater for the survivors and workers of the shelter.
