Türkiye and Northern Syria


EARTHQUAKES

People in Türkiye and Syria are receiving ShelterBox aid following the powerful earthquakes that killed over 50,000 people and damaged 66,000 buildings.

We have aid in both countries, including essential items such as tents, blankets, mattresses, and winter coats for children, with more on the way.

The items will help people surviving through this ongoing nightmare, protecting them from the winter weather, preventing the spread of disease, and providing some privacy, as they get back on their feet.

Pakistan


Flooding

Severe monsoon flooding in Pakistan has left thousands of people with nowhere to live.

The disaster has affected more than 33 million people and around 1 million houses have been damaged or destroyed.

We have partnered with Islamic Relief Pakistan to support thousands of people left with nowhere to live.

Aid includes tents, water filters and carriers, mosquito nets, solar lights and cash assistance.

UKRAINE


CONFLICT

We are responding to the Ukraine crisis, helping more than 37,000 people affected by the war in Ukraine so far. We’ve supported people displaced within Ukraine, as well as refugees who crossed the border into Moldova.

With our attention now firmly on supporting people through the bitter winter months, we’ll be reaching around 30,000 more people with essential items to help them survive.

People are living in damaged homes without heating or lighting. That’s why we’re providing thermal clothing, solar lights, water carriers and stoves with our new partner, NNLPD.

We’re also working with ReliefAid and Green Chernobyl to provide emergency shelter repair kits. This will help people fix damaged roofs, seal windows and doors, keep the heat in and make homes watertight.

Syria


CONFLICT

In Syria the need for humanitarian support is greater than ever. People are facing violent conflict, financial crisis and extreme weather.

We’ve been supporting families affected by the war in Syria since 2012.

Right now, we’re providing essential aid items to get people through the tough winter months. Working with our partners ReliefAid and Bahar Organisation, we’ll be supporting 4,000 families in the Northeast and Northwest with winterisation items such as baby grows, coats, mattresses, tent bases and other essential aid items.

ETHIOPIA


CONFLICT

Millions of people have been forced to flee their homes due to violent conflict and drought in Ethiopia.

Working with our partner IOM, we’ve supported people with items like tarpaulins, rope, blankets, sleeping mats, mosquito nets, water carriers and kitchen sets.

We have supported a total of 22,000 people in the Afar and Somali regions in the last year. Aid distributions are now complete.

MOZAMBIQUE


CONFLICT

The conflict in northern Mozambique is driving one of the world’s fastest-growing displacement crises.

Since October 2017, an Islamic extremist group has been launching violent attacks on civilians in the northern province of Cabo Delgado.

With help from our partner CARE Mozambique, we supporting vulnerable communities with shelter kits, solar lights, kitchen sets, sleeping mats, and mosquito nets.

CAMEROON


THE LAKE CHAD BASIN CRISIS

Since 2009, Boko Haram has been waging an insurgency in Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon.

Around 9.7 million people are now in need of urgent humanitarian aid in the Lake Chad region.

In Cameroon, we have supported over 18,000 families. We’re now working with our partner Public Concern to provide a range of emergency shelters and durable shelters, depending on people’s needs.

Give emergency shelter

Yemen


CONFLICT

Yemen is currently the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

It is a result of the bitter civil war, starvation, and a failing economy.

We have partnered with BCHR (Benevolence Coalition for Humanitarian Relief) to support vulnerable communities as violence flares up again. Together we are providing tents, tarpaulins, water filters, soap, masks and other household items.

Aid distributions are now complete, but we’re planning another project to support more people.

Burkina Faso


CONFLICT

Burkina Faso is one of the fastest-growing displacement crises in Africa.

1.9 million people have been forced to flee their homes due to extremist violence. Efforts by both government forces and local militias to fight it have uprooted even more communities.

Together with our partner, HELP, we’ve supported over 4,000 families since 2020.

Recently, we have been providing aid items and emergency shelters known as Sahelian tents. These tents are constructed from locally sourced materials and offer a more durable structure for displaced families who have fled their homes to escape extremist violence.

YOUR SUPPORT CHANGES LIVES

When disasters destroy homes, shelter is essential. Your donation will provide the tools and materials to create quality shelters, and rebuild lives. We use your support to choose exactly the right aid for each community after disaster strikes.
