ShelterBox is responding in the Caribbean after Hurricane Beryl left a trail of devastation across the islands.

We’re partnering with Rotary to get emergency shelter aid and other essential items to thousands of people uprooted from their homes in Grenada.

Right now, entire communities are living out in the open or in overcrowded buildings like schools. We’ll be providing tents as well as essential items like mosquito nets, solar lights, and cooking sets.

Your donation today can help us respond to disasters around the world, wherever we are needed.

How is ShelterBox responding?


Our focus is delivering aid to people on the islands of Carriacou and Petite Martinique in Grenada. Here, most buildings, homes and schools, have been damaged or destroyed.

We’ll be providing tents as well as essential items like mosquito nets, solar lights, and cooking sets.

A response like this can be very challenging. There is limited transport, no connectivity and no power on the islands where we’re working. But we have worked in the Caribbean before, and we have a good idea of what we’re facing.

Being prepared for disasters


Hurricanes and other severe weather events happen every year. These become disasters when people are not prepared, and not supported to recover afterwards. 

Some people become trapped in a cycle of disaster, lacking time to recover from one disaster before the next one strikes. With storms becoming more powerful people in the Caribbean could face repeated destruction.

We have emergency shelter aid like tarpaulins, tents, and tools stored in Panama and other strategic locations around the world. Hurricanes happen every year – so before a disaster happens, we make sure we’re ready to respond.
