ShelterBox  provide emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most. 

Since ShelterBoxs inception in 2000, they have responded to earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, tsunamis, hurricanes, landslides, typhoons and conflict, delivering emergency humanitarian aid to families in need on every continent.

The ShelterBox solution in disaster response is as simple as it is effective. We deliver the essentials a family needs to survive in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. Each large, green ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster but typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, groundsheets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, mosquito nets, solar lamps, a basic tool kit, a childrens activity pack and other vital items.

We pride ourselves on our ability to respond instantly to disasters and to do this we rely on a global network of volunteers. ShelterBoxes are delivered by highly trained, volunteer ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) members.
