The FRESH project, initiated by members of the NARRI Consortium, funded by UKAID, is responding to the shelter and sanitation needs of the most vulnerable communities affected by water logging in southwest Bangladesh. It aims to provide a combination of disaster resilient family shelters and WASH (water sanitation and hygiene) support for families whose homes were destroyed during the recent floods and water logging, and appropriate advocacy to support the shelter as well as reducing risk to disasters in the future.
