HOW IT WORKS
THE DIFFERENCE YOU'LL MAKE
Meet Victoria and Dmytro. They live 12 miles outside of Kyiv, Ukraine. The last year has changed their lives forever.
‘We knew from the beginning that the war was coming…We could hear the guns and see the helicopters,” Victoria said.
After the war broke out in 2022, their apartment was destroyed. Families were evacuated and left with nothing.
After months of angst, ShelterBox was able to help Victoria and Dmytro rebuild their home and was the only disaster relief organization to assist in their community.
At ShelterBox, we know that shelter is more than just a roof – it’s a home. It’s the foundation for life, for families, for communities. With more than 100 million people around the world currently homeless due to disasters and conflict, they need your support now more than ever.
By joining us on the Adventurers Yosemite Trek, you will help communities like Victoria and Dmytro’s to rebuild their homes and their lives after disaster.

Inspired Adventures does their best to keep the travel costs as quoted. However, please bear in mind they can change due to group size or factors out of our control. Due to the unpredictability of the impact of COVID-19 on borders and safety requirements, our ground operators may be required to change their operations in a way that could impact cost. In this event, Inspired Travel may have to add on an additional supplement fee if absolutely necessary. This fee would be required if our operator needs to add on additional vehicles, equipment and/or staff.
