The Shelter Effect or how a safe home can change everything. Come and share your experiences here: www.facebook.com/TheShelterEffect
The numbers are all out there. Over a billion living in slums, millions sleeping in flooded homes, countless shelters devastated by disasters every year. But it's no longer news -- earthquakes and hurricanes don't kill people. Buildings do. It's time to fix this picture and work together to make a difference.
Safer shelter can be achieved. Small changes can make a huge difference. Fix your roof, raise a floor, build a drain or improve in your neighbourhoods... Let's join forces to make houses, buildings, villages, cities better places to live in. Contribute your ideas and success stories in tackling unsafe shelter and its impact on health, the economy, the environment and society.
