ShelterBox – Shelter, Warmth, Dignity

ShelterBox - the contents of a ShelterBox

ShelterBox responds to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict by delivering boxes of aid.

Each box supplies an extended family of up to 10 people with a tent and lifesaving equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless. The contents are tailored depending on the nature and location of the disaster, with great care taken sourcing every item to ensure it is robust enough to be of lasting value.

ShelterBox was a new discovery for me, but has been the Rotary Club’s largest project since 2000 and in May 2009 ShelterBox launched its official partnership with The Scout Association.
