We have learned that ShelterBox has been nominated for the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize, in recognition of our humanitarian efforts in areas of extreme conflict.

As one of Rotary International’s longest established partnerships, this nomination is an example of supporting Rotary’s Area of Focus on promoting peace.

The nomination reflects the incredible work done by the ShelterBox staff and volunteers around the world, and those who have supported them, especially the many Rotary Clubs and Rotarians worldwide.

Final Exam

Ned Morris, ShelterBox

“That was the hardest part for me, knowing that we can’t help everyone.”

– Ned Morris, Rotarian and ShelterBox volunteer

In the May edition of The Rotarian magazine, Rotary International was given unprecedented access to report on the three Rotarians who were invited to join the ShelterBox Response Team, where they were greeted by a no-nonsense trainer announcing “this is your final exam.”
