KIA ORA, AND WELCOME TO SHELTERBOX NZ
Right now, more than 104 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. Here at ShelterBox, we’re working to change that.
When natural disasters and conflicts rob people of their homes and their livelihoods, we can’t wave a magic wand to replace what was lost. But, we can help.
We are made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right – that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital.
So, we provide emergency shelter and tools to disaster-hit families around the world, enabling people to rebuild their lives, and transform depair into hope.
We know that every disaster is different, and so is every community, so we spend time working with those affected by disaster, to make sure we can offer the right support at the right time, to help them recover.
Our Response Teams travel by boat, helicopter, and even tuk-tuk to reach the world’s most vulnerable – going where others often can’t or won’t, and doing whatever it takes to reach those who need support.
We are impatient to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster.
