ShelterBox is an international disaster relief organisation and Rotary Project Partner. ShelterBox is made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right — that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital.

When people are plunged into crisis, normality is suspended. But good, quality shelter can cut through the chaos. This is why they provide the tools that enable people to rebuild homes and transform their lives.

Rotary has supported ShelterBox from the start when a local club championed the simple idea to package up essential shelter items in their now-iconic ShelterBoxes. As ShelterBox grew, so did Rotary support, and ShelterBox and Rotary are now international Project Partners in disaster relief. This partnership has helped ShelterBox become who they are today. Their global network of ShelterBox Affiliates, which provides all-round assistance, evolved from Rotary relationships.
