Emergency Disaster Relief
Right now, around 85 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?
Disasters and climate change
Climate change poses a significant threat to humanity. It is a threat which can only be tackled with immediate global action.
The global climate is changing at an unprecedented rate and it’s having dramatic effects on our environment.
Rising sea levels caused by shrinking glaciers and melting sea ice are increasing the risk of devastating floods. Shifting weather patterns are threatening food production and making weather-related events more extreme.
ESCAPING BOKO HARAM in Nigeria
40-year-old Esther sadly lost her husband when Boko Haram militants violently attacked her village in Nigeria.
A day that she talks about with a lot of sadness. Speaking to IEDA Relief, ShelterBox’s implementing partner in Cameroon, she said:
“We were at home eating together and planning a journey to a nearby village for a ceremony. Then suddenly, armed men broke the door of our house and entered. We immediately knew who they were, so I knelt to beg them. They took my husband and killed him.”
