About ShelterBox Disaster Relief

Right now, around 85 million people around the world have been displaced by natural disaster and conflict. ShelterBox is working to change this.

Natural disasters and conflicts never take days off, and neither do we. We’re always on the ground, working to help the most vulnerable, no matter how remote. We’re hammering pegs, tying knots and building shelter right now.

By providing emergency shelter and tools for displaced families, ShelterBox is transforming despair into hope.

We are striving for a world where no family is left without shelter. Join us. Make a difference. Do something.

Who Is ShelterBox?

ShelterBox is a global organization made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right – that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital.

When people are plunged into crisis, normality is suspended. But good, quality shelter can cut through the chaos. This is why we provide the tools that enable people to rebuild homes and transform their lives.

We do things differently. We were born different. We started life as a small organization in the UK and have grown to make a big impact across the world. We don’t follow the crowd – we’ve carved our own path that leads straight to the families we support.

Our pledge

We are impatient to see a world where no family is left without shelter when disaster strikes. This drives us to transform the support of our donors, fundraisers and volunteers into the hope and power of families all over the world – the power to rebuild homes, lives and communities.

Our impatience leads to determination. We will do whatever it takes to ensure that no family goes without shelter.
