Emergency Disaster Relief

Today, around 113 million people around the world have been displaced by natural disaster and conflict. ShelterBox is actively working to change this, but we need your help!

We are constantly providing emergency shelter and tools to displaced families around the world. Natural disasters and conflicts never take days off, and neither do we. We’re always on the ground, working to help the most vulnerable, no matter how remote.
We transform despair into hope for those that need it the most.

We want to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster. Find out more about us.

How We Help

Every minute, a family loses everything in the chaos of conflict. Their homes, livelihoods, and family members are brutally taken from them. See how we build peace, one step at a time.
