Refugee camps across Iraq are about to get a Swedish touch.
There are more than two million refugees and internally displaced persons in Iraq, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. In recent years, the agency has also worked with Ikea to provide solar lamps to refugees in Ethiopia, Sudan, Bangladesh, Chad, and Jordan.
“Putting refugee families and their needs at the heart of this project is a great example of how democratic design can be used for humanitarian value,” Jonathan Spampinato, head of the Ikea Foundation’s strategic planning and communications, said in a statement. “We are incredibly proud that the Better Shelter is now available so refugee families and children can have a safer place to call home.”
