Why fundraise for ShelterBox?
Every year millions of people are displaced or made homeless by disasters. ShelterBox instantly responds to natural and manmade disaster by providing boxes of aid. Each ShelterBox provides an extended family with emergency shelter and vital equipment when they need it most.
How your fundraising could help:
£55 warmth and protection - Thermal blankets and groundsheets help people stay warm once they have lost their homes
£230 shelter for a family - Our disaster relief tent is custom made and is designed to withstand extreme temperatures, high winds and heavy rainfall
£590 a new start - A complete ShelterBox will provide a family with the shelter and other vital equipment they need to survive after a disaster and to start rebuilding their lives
