Emergency Disaster Relief

Right now, around 88 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. ShelterBox Australia is 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?

We travel to the most remote regions to provide emergency aid.
