You are here: Emergency Disaster Relief - ShelterBox

Emergency disaster relief

Right now, around 85 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. We're working to change this.

By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we're transforming despair into hope.

We are impatient to see a world where no family is left without shelter. Are you?

Deadly Earthquakes in Lombok

Since Sunday 29 July, the island of Lombok in Indonesia has been struck by a series of violent earthquakes, leaving dozens of people dead and hundreds more injured.

At least 270,000 men, women and children have been left homeless and urgently need shelter.

We're on the ground right now and hope to provide tents and tarpaulins to help families who have lost everything. 

Rotary teams will be helping our volunteer Response Team to deliver the aid into the hands of the families who need it.

We believe shelter is a human right. That’s why we will do whatever it takes to help vulnerable and remote communities when disaster or conflict strikes.
