Emergency Disaster Relief
Right now, over 100 million people around the world have been made homeless by disaster and conflict. ShelterBox is 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.
ShelterBox exists to ensure no one is without shelter after disaster. We often work in places that others don’t, making sure that we reach families who need support to take the next step in resuming their livelihoods.
From Cameroon to Syria, all the way to the Philippines and the Caribbean, ShelterBox has provided shelter to over 2.5 million people so far.
We won’t stop until we see a world where no family goes without shelter after disaster.
