What we do to help others around the world

Since 2000, ShelterBox have supported 1.5 million people with emergency shelter and other essentials, across 97 countries.

ShelterBox are able to make the impact they do thanks to the tremendous support which Rotary gives them around the world. From local fundraising, to volunteering as part of their response teams.
