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?

How we work

Reaching the most remote communities

From 21 November to 21 December, hundreds of people across the UK will host a fun, candlelit party to raise money for families caught up in disaster.
