Transforming Lives


In the last few months, thousands of families have been without a single scrap of shelter.

From hurricanes Irma and Maria, to the Rohingya crisis, families have been forced into a life and death struggle.

Solar, a 49-year-old mother from Peru, knows this struggle. Earlier this year heavy rains and landslides battered her village. Nothing was left but a wasteland of muddy debris.

Solar was left feeling hopeless… until our Response Team arrived with a ShelterBox.

She said: ‘We’re at the end of the world. No one comes here. No one visits and brings help…We were so happy to receive the box. It was like Christmas in a box!’

Our shelter aid has the power to transform lives. They’re more than just tents and blankets – they can become a home, a place where families come together.

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or any other holiday, please give a shelter miracle to a family like Solar’s today.

We are at the end of the world. No one comes here. No one visits and brings help…We were so happy to receive the box. It was like Christmas in a box!
