Mission Statement

Our mission

"To provide humanitarian aid worldwide in the form of shelter, warmth and comfort to people displaced by natural and other disasters."

Description

Who are ShelterBox?
The ShelterBox Trust is a registered UK charity operated by the Rotary Club of Helston-Lizard and based in Cornwall.

The charity was set up in April 2000 to provide aid for disaster victims and the first ShelterBoxes were sent to Gujarat in India in January 2001.

The ShelterBox Trust is also supported by ShelterBox organizations set up by Rotary clubs in a number of other countries, including the USA, Canada, Australia and Southeast Asia.

All aid provided by ShelterBox is organized and distributed from The ShelterBox Trust's base in Cornwall.

What does ShelterBox do?
Our mission is to deliver immediate relief to victims of natural and other disasters anywhere around the world.

Disasters to which we have responded include earthquakes, hurricanes, wars, floods, landslides, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions and typhoons.

We achieve our mission by providing rugged 10-person tents to be used as emergency accommodation and other survival essentials as required.

As of January 2007, ShelterBox has sent aid to 31 different countries, providing shelter for approaching 500,000 people.
