What we do

Right now, around 85 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. We're working to change this.

By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we're transforming despair into hope.

We are impatient to see a world where no family is left without shelter. Are you?

Tailoring support to help rebuild communities


We deliver the essentials people need to begin rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of a disaster.

Each disaster is different, and so is every community. We don’t believe that one size fits all, so we make considered assessments to provide the exact support that gives people the hope and the power to transform their own lives.

The aid we supply comes in the form of ShelterBoxes and ShelterKits. Our sturdy green ShelterBoxes contain family-sized tents specially designed to withstand the elements and provide people with temporary shelter until they are able to start the process of rebuilding a home. Our ShelterKits contain all of the essential tools people need to start repairing and rebuilding homes straight away.
 

That’s not all. We know that a home is much more than bricks and mortar or tarpaulin and tent pegs. Our kits and boxes contain the items that help transform shelter into a home, like cooking sets, solar lights and activity sets for children.

We test and evaluate all of the aid we provide by talking to, and learning from, the families who use it. This fuels us to be innovative and to continue evolving.

 

Creating a home is a process that takes time and we support families to continue on that journey.

Dave Ray, ShelterBox Operations Coordinator
