Every year, millions of families around the world are made homeless because of humanitarian crises and disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, storms, droughts, and floods.
ShelterBox is an international, nonprofit organization that responds immediately, by providing humanitarian relief in the form of emergency shelter and supplies that bring hope, independence, and a sense of normalcy to the most vulnerable people.
Since 2000, the organization has delivered boxes of emergency shelter and other essential household supplies such as tents, water filters, stoves, blankets, solar lights, and other tools to help families survive and rebuild their homes and lives in the aftermath of more than 300 disasters in over 100 countries worldwide.
ShelterBox was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018 and 2019 for our work in conflict zones. In 2021, Shelterbox reached the milestone of providing life-saving aid to more than 2 million people.
