Sheltersuit Foundation / Shelter homeless, provide jobs

After losing the father of a friend to hypothermia, due to being forced to sleep outside of a shelter, Bas Timmer decided that something had to be done. No one deserves the horrible fate of freezing to death because they can’t afford decent protective clothing. We believe everyone deserves warmth, protection and dignity. That is why we design and manufacture multifunctional products that provide immediate shelter to people experiencing homelessness. This is not a replacement for finding a home but a supplement to when you have no other choice. We aim provide immediate shelter to the homeless, while using up cycled material and providing jobs.
