GOING THE EXTRA MILE
We go to the ragged ends of the earth to reach the most remote communities that have been devastated by disaster.
We do this with the help of an amazing network of volunteers. Our aid is hand-packed with care before being transported around the world.
Our 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 travel by foot, boat, helicopter or even tuk-tuk to get there. Whatever it takes.
Our work isn’t done until we know that we’ve provided the right materials to help people transform their lives.
Our ShelterBox 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.
We don’t just make quick decisions; we make good decisions. We work directly with local communities and partner with organizations to make sure that we get the right support to the right people.
ShelterBox collaborates with different aid organizations, government bodies and Rotary International to ensure that we can reach the most vulnerable families.
These collaborations happen at every stage of the journey. They enable us to transport aid across continents, bridge languages and take the path that leads straight to the families who need our support.
