The Rotary and ShelterBox Partnership


Rotary International and ShelterBox are project partners in disaster relief. By working together, we are able to collaborate and combine resources to ensure that we can support more communities in desperate need of shelter after disaster.

At any given time, 365 days a year, ShelterBox response teams are on the ground, supporting families to recover after disaster and conflict all over the world. Rotary is with us every step of the way.

Each month, we send out an email update to Rotarians and Rotary Clubs nationwide – looking into where we’re working, and sharing the stories of those who we’re helping.
