ShelterBox responds immediately to all kinds of disaster. Aid is distributed in our iconic green boxes and each box contains a custom designed relief tent, strong enough to withstand the harshest of conditions. Other box contents include cooking and eating utensils, water purification equipment, a stove, blankets, ground mats, mosquito nets, a tool kit and a children's activity pack.

ShelterBox has grown to become the largest Rotary Club project in the history of the Rotary organisation. It has helped more than 1 million people, sent over 135,000 ShelterBoxes to more than 270 disasters in over 95 countries around the world. The ShelterBox solution ensures that we are able to send vital aid wherever and whenever it is needed.

ShelterBox - Coronavirus Update  25 June 2020

Posted by: ShelterBox New Zealand

At ShelterBox, we’re adapting how we work as coronavirus creates a whole new level of risk for vulnerable families who have lost their homes.

The potential impact of the pandemic in places where we’re already working – like crowded camps and makeshift settlements in Syria, Ethiopia and Burkina Faso – is terrifying.

These are places more cramped than the Diamond Princess cruise ship, where the virus spread four times faster than it did in Wuhan.

These are places where many people are already vulnerable because of underlying health issues and a lack of food. Where health care facilities are either non-existent or struggle to cope with demand at the best of times.

These are places where the impact of coronavirus could be more devastating than anything we have seen so far.

In the face of this coronavirus crisis, shelter means more than ever.
