Leaving a gift in memory of a loved one is a wonderful tribute to their life.

Thank you for thinking about ShelterBox during this difficult time. Your generosity and support means we can help more families to rebuild their lives when disasters and conflict leave them with nothing.

Why give in memory?

The support that you give us means greater safety and comfort for Syrian families, like Ahmed’s.

When the fighting in Ahmed’s village intensified, Ahmed along with his wife and seven children fled their home with the help of relatives and friends.

The family now live in a camp for internally displaced people.

My children feel safe here. The tent and the household items that we received made us feel more independent and gave us privacy

– Ahmed

Wendy’s Story

In loving memory of her daughter, who lost her life in the tragic Boxing Day tsunami, Wendy has been selling her flowers for charity.

Wendy opens her doors every year to sell beautiful primrose-like flowers that she has grown herself. Hellebore Day occurs every February and draws horticulturalists from all over the country.

Hellebore Day has taken on a life of its own. I know my daughter would have wholeheartedly supported it as I do.
