Become a ShelterBox Ambassador

Do you want to volunteer some time to spread the word
about the vital work and people we support at ShelterBox?
Then why not apply to be an Ambassador.

Our ambassador’s play a hugely important role within ShelterBox.

You amplify the voices of the people hit by disaster and conflict, you share their stories, raise awareness of the work we do with members of your community, inspire fundraising and further engagement with ShelterBox.

Without people like you, we would not have the capacity and reach we have in spreading these important stories.

Who you are supporting

Mohamed is the community leader of a small village in the Al Haouz region of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. His village suffered severe damage in the earthquake that struck Morocco on 8th September 2023. 

When the earthquake struck, Mohamed was working at a maternity home. It took him all night to travel back to his village, as there was devastation everywhere. In a neighbouring village, Mohamed received terrible news.

I met a man that I knew there, he told me that my wife, my sister, my son, my nephew, and my neighbour were dead. I kept walking and I arrived at my village, I found some of them there in one place, I went to behind my house to get some blankets to cover them.”

In the aftermath of the earthquake, Mohamed focused on helping his village. ShelterBox supported people in his village with tents and household items. Mohamed shared the difference the items made. “We have these tents, we have a lot of blankets that good people and associations have given to us, so we are all good, we are safe.”

Mohamed is just one of thousands of people ShelterBox have supported after disaster and conflict. By representing ShelterBox, sharing our work and telling the stories of the people we support, our Ambassadors play a key role in supporting people like Mohamed.
