Rotary and ShelterBox: Partners in Disaster Relief

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 people all around the world to help them recover after disaster and conflict. Rotary is with us every step of the way.

Every other month, we send out an email update to Rotarians and Rotary Clubs nationwide, giving you an insider’s view of where we’re working, sharing stories of those who we’re helping, answering frequently asked questions, and highlighting how Rotary Clubs in New Zealand are working to support ShelterBox.
