We’re responding to disasters around the world. Help us to be there for people wherever the need is greatest.

Northern Hemisphere winter is at its worst; long and cold nights are the reality for the millions of displaced people around the world.  It is hard to imagine the challenges winter brings for people made homeless while Aotearoa New Zealand enjoys a rather fine summer.  With your help, ShelterBox is able to provide winter-specific assistance in the form of high-quality shelter, winter survival kits, warm clothing, cooking equipment, thermal blankets, and lighting.

Your assistance helps us support people to stay warm and stay together.




Your donation will change the lives of people in need by providing emergency shelter and essential equipment. Whether you choose to make a recurring monthly payment or a one-time donation, you will have a direct impact on the lives of people all around the world.
