SHELTER BOX PROJECT
Twelve years ago, a Rotarian spotted a gap in aid provision following natural disasters. While food and medicine were immediately delivered, little to no assistance went directly to sheltering survivors and helping them through the first few days, weeks, and months as they struggled to rebuild their lives. Shelter Box was launched to fill that void, providing shelter, warmth, and (in effect) dignity to disaster survivors around the world.
Each Shelter Box provides a tent for a family of up to 10 people, a stove, cooking and eating utensils, tools, a water purification system, bedding, protective materials such as state of the art mosquito netting and a pack of children’s books, pencils and crayons.
