Emergency Disaster Relief
Right now, more than 104 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 want to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster. Find out more about us.
Hurricane season is here
2020 has been a year like no other. Whilst coronavirus gets a hold of the world but is yet to reach its global peak, an extremely active hurricane season is ongoing.
Now, as Hurricanes Laura and Marco pound the Caribbean and the US Gulf Coast, this is fast becoming a season of unwelcome records.
Read our blog article to find out more about the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season and how we’re preparing here at ShelterBox.

RECOVERY STARTS WITH SHELTER
Our vision is to see a world where no family is without shelter after disaster.
Our teams work with disaster-hit families around the world, offering emergency shelter and other essential items to support them in rebuilding their lives.
Every disaster is different and so is every community, so we spend time with those affected to make sure we can offer the right support at the right time to help them recover.
Our response teams can travel by boat, helicopter or tuk-tuk to get to the families who need your support – whatever it takes to get to the people who have lost their homes to disaster.
