Shelter Box

Right now, around 85 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. ShelterBox is working to change this. By providing emergency shelter and tools for displaced families, we’re transforming despair into hope. 

We are project partners with Rotary International, a global community of 1.2 million neighbors, friends and community leaders. Their aim is to create positive, lasting change in communities at home and all over the world.

By working together with Rotary, we are able to collaborate and combine resources to ensure that we can support more communities in desperate need of shelter.

Rotarians and Rotary groups across the world support us in a variety of ways, from raising funds to providing support on the ground during our response to a disaster. This enables us to cross boundaries and cut through red tape to reach even the most remote communities.
