Every family deserves a place to call home after disaster.
We go to the ragged ends of the earth to reach the most remote communities – working with those devastated by disaster, to provide the emergency shelter, essential items and training, to support families in the long process of rebuilding their lives.
Every disaster is different so we have a flexible approach. We listen and learn from the communities we work with to make sure we provide the right support.
We often go further, working with hard to reach communities who are overlooked by others.
Before a disaster happens, we make sure we are ready to help. Our aid is hand-packed and stored in strategic locations around the world so we can get it to the families who need it as quickly as possible.
We work with trusted local partners and we have a network of incredible volunteers who are ready to help at a moment’s notice. These highly trained ShelterBox response teams then go the extra mile to find the people left most vulnerable after a disaster – to make sure that no one gets forgotten or left behind.
Our teams can travel by foot, boat, helicopter or tuk-tuk to get to the families who need your support – whatever it takes to get to the people who need us.
These response teams don’t just provide tools and tents or share skills. Our teams are the connection between ShelterBox’s supporters and people devastated by disaster – ordinary families helping other families thrown into extraordinary circumstances.
