At NRS Relief, we strive to pioneer products that meet the needs of the end user. Since the launch of our ‘Innovation in Action’ campaign in 2015, we have introduced various game-changing products following this holistic, collaborative approach.

Our product developments are beneficiary-driven, sustainable and evidence-based. The solutions are the outcome of a cross-cutting process in which each individual and/or institution contributes. We follow a cycle of innovation that invites all actors to contribute to the optimal product. This collaboration model is applied to every single relief item that we manufacture, from water buckets to tarpaulins, from refugee shelter to multipurpose tents. This results in better quality results, greater client and beneficiary satisfaction, and technological breakthroughs that have a real social impact.

Our recent innovations

Fire retardancy

We are the first supplier to bring fully fire retardant tents and tarpaulins to the field, which took years of extensive research and development. This significant milestone has made refugee camps safer.

Jerry Bucket

The Jerry Bucket is the result of our collaboration with Oxfam’s WASH team. The improved design of the 14L bucket creates a stackable safe water container that is easy to clean and will reduce the risk of water contamination. To learn more, click here.
