How your gift helps families in an emergency

ShelterBox is no ordinary charity. We believe that every family has the right to a shelter they can call home. No ifs. No buts.

Give our extraordinary Book Club as a gift today and you’ll be helping ShelterBox reach even more families hit by disaster.

Your support will help fill our vital ShelterBoxes and ShelterKits with emergency essentials, like tents, water filters and solar lights.

Whenever disaster strikes – whether it’s a hurricane, floods or severe drought – the love of a good book will help create real-life stories with a happier ending.

Nigerian Family in their shelter
Your membership will be helping families like Khadija's, who had to leave everything behind in Nigeria and flee Boko Haram. The family were provided with sturdy materials to build a new shelter, and feel safe again.
