Find out more about ShelterBox's remarkable story

ShelterBox has grown rapidly since its inception in 2000, providing emergency relief on every continent for the people who need it most.

If there is one thing we have learned through more than a decade of delivering disaster relief, it is that the next big disaster could be just around the corner. 


We will respond to all disasters where there are families in need of emergency shelter and we need your help to be ready to respond. We are constantly working to increase our capacity to store and distribute ShelterBoxes so when the next catastrophic disaster happens, we can respond instantly with large consignments of aid. 


We are fortunate enough to have a network of supporters who do not stop until the job is done. There will always be disasters, always be families in need and we will always be there to help.


Our vision is of a world where everyone affected by disaster has access to the shelter and basic equipment they need to survive and live in dignity and safety.


Our mission is to deliver humanitarian aid in the form of equipment and materials that provide shelter, warmth and dignity to people affected by natural or other disasters worldwide. 



Our goal is to help 50,000 families who lose everything in a disaster every year. 

With your help, we will achieve this goal. Click here to DONATE NOW.
