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 are impatient to see a world where no family is left without shelter. Are you?
20 YEARS OF SHELTERBOX
ShelterBox first started as a Millenium project by the Rotary Club of Helston-Lizard in Cornwall in 2000.
Since then, it has grown to be an international disaster relief charity, providing emergency shelter in some of the most hard-to-reach places in the world.
In the last 20 years, we have supported 1.5 million people in nearly 100 countries, and we haven’t stopped.
In 2020, coronavirus has made us adapt how we work to reach even more vulnerable families. With your support, we can do more.
Discover more about our history, the places we’ve responded to, and meet some of the families we’ve helped.
