The Atlantic hurricane season starts on 1 June. Please donate today, so when this year’s biggest storms hit, we are ready to respond.

We already know what this year’s most devastating hurricanes will be called. But we don’t know when they will strike.

The climate crisis is leaving more people in need of emergency shelter than ever before. Together, we can make sure more families have a place to shelter.

A recent forecast from the Colorado State University predicts that there will be at least 19 named storms and nine hurricanes in the North Atlantic and Northeast Pacific regions this year.

Four of these will be Category 3 or higher. 

ShelterBox has a network of regional hubs in strategic locations across the globe – in Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia. It’s how we get shelter and other essentials to families more quickly and efficiently.

With your support, we can have the right aid in the right place to reach communities quickly as the climate crisis grows.

Storm Season is Here

We’re providing emergency shelter for families who have lost their homes to extreme storms, but we need your help.
