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 are impatient to see a world where no family is left without shelter. Are you?
