Emergency Disaster Relief

Right now, more than 113 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? Find out more about us.


The conflict in Syria dates back to March 2011. Today, it has shifted into a seemingly unsolvable crisis, leaving a country scarred by terror and instability. Right now, at least 12 million people need humanitarian assistance.

Our Impact

Go further for disaster relief

Challenge yourself to do something amazing for families in need by joining one of our 2021 #Trek4Shelter adventures.

This year, our goal is to raise $250,000 across five of our once-in-a-lifetime adventures. This amount is enough to provide 1,000 families with essential shelter aid, including our ShelterKits, solar lights, water filters and mosquito nets — life-changing, life-saving aid that will help disaster-affected communities to begin the slow process of recovery.

Our vision is to see a world where no family is without shelter after disaster.

Every disaster is different and so is every community, so we spend time with those affected to make sure we can offer the right support at the right time to help them recover.
