Transforming Lives

After a disaster, shelter is more than just a roof – it’s a home

CREATING STRONG FOUNDATIONS


The Impact of ShelterBox

Shelter is more than just a roof – it’s a home. It’s the foundation for life, for families, for communities.

When natural disasters and conflicts displace people from their homes, we can’t wave a magic wand to replace what was lost, but we can have positive impact. We can provide people with the tools to start the process of their own recovery.

Your support provides shelter that protects families from burning heat, bitter cold, dangerous animals and disease, and so much more.

A shelter creates a space where families can have privacy from the rest of the world, where they can feel safety and security in being together.

When people are plunged into crisis, normality is suspended. But good, quality shelter can cut through the chaos. It doesn’t just give people space to heal from physical and emotional trauma, but it gives them roots, roots that go far deeper than a simple tent peg.

Your support is amazing. Your support turns simple items like tents and tarps into the tools that transform lives.

Since ShelterBox began in 2000, your support has helped us provide shelter for more than 1 million people. A million people who not only have protection from the elements, but a place to call home.
