On 27 January 2017 The Guardian reported:
Ikea's solar-powered Better Shelter lasts six times longer than a typical emergency tent and has already changed the lives of thousands of refugees around the world. When Hind and Saffa Hameed arrived at the Al Jamea'a refugee camp in Baghdad in 2015, having been hounded from their home in Ramadi by Islamic State militants, they had never been so glad to see an Ikea product.
