ShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that provides emergency shelter & essential aid to families who have lost everything

Otago

Every year, thousands of families lose their homes, possessions and livelihoods - often without warning, due to natural disaster and conflict.

When these disasters and conflicts rob people of their homes and their livelihoods, we can’t wave a magic wand to replace what was lost. But, we can help – and that is the heart of ShelterBox.

ShelterBox is an international disaster relief organisation that hand-delivers emergency shelter and essential aid items to families who have lost everything.

Driven by our belief that recovery starts with shelter, we provide families with aid items such as tents, water filters, solar lights, thermal blankets, and hygiene kits - enabling them to rebuild homes and transform despair into hope.

Over the past 22 years, our aid has helped 2 million people in 98 countries worldwide.

More about us

ShelterBox New Zealand is an international disaster relief charity that provides emergency shelter and essential aid to families who have lost everything due to disaster or conflict.

Shelter is so much more than is more than a roof and four walls – it's a home, and a foundation for life, family, and community. That's why we're committed to providing families with safe shelter, as well as the tools they need to rebuild their lives, in the face of extreme hardship.

Our aid items include tents, toolkits, solar lights, blankets, water filters, and hygiene kits - all of which help families find hope after their darkest days.

"We are very grateful for the ShelterKits, we will use it for the remains of what was left of our house, the house was destroyed almost completely, I plan to rebuild my house in the future. I have a wife and three children who left when the war started"
