KIA ORA!… WELCOME TO SHELTERBOX NZ

 

Right now, around 85 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. ShelterBox is 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 want to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster. Find out more about us.

INNOVATION HELPS FAMILIES SURVIVE


Disaster can rob families of everything. But with the right materials at the right time, families find ingenious ways to rebuild their lives.

Take Margaretha, who turned her ShelterBox into a crib for her newborn baby. Or Rahma, who is using her solar lights to further her education.

From harvest tools to sledges, storage boxes to lion scarers, we’ve lost count of the number of inventive ways families are using our aid.

See how you can help to provide the equipment that gives families a lifeline.
