Winter is here

Temperatures are below freezing.

Will you help people affected by disaster to survive the winter?

Emergency Disaster Relief


Right now, over 100 million people around the world have been made homeless by disaster and conflict. We’re working to change this.

By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we’re transforming despair into hope.

We want to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster. Find out more about us.

What would you take?

Every day people caught up in the war in Ukraine face impossible choices. Stay or go. Fight or flee. Take or leave. Watch our moving new film to witness the impossible choices families face.

Gifts that make a difference


Virtual gifts are a great way to give alternative gifts to family, friends and loved ones whilst making a difference around the world.

When you buy your gifts from ShelterBox, you are giving so much more than a gift card. Every e-card will make a tangible difference to someone’s life. Your gift will provide emergency shelter and aid to families wherever the need is greatest.

Defy gift-giving conventions today and help families recover for tomorrow.
