Since December 2004, when we first worked in the Philippines, more than 2,500 ShelterBoxes have been sent to the country and delivered to families in their hour of need.
The support we receive from the Philippines is overwhelming and our international affiliate is an integral part of the ShelterBox family. They provide the charity with an invaluable logistics base in the disaster hit region of south-east Asia while at the same time have the capacity to mobilise many fundraisers throughout the country.
The ShelterBox Philippines team also offer vital support to our Response Teams when they are delivering emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies throughout the region.
