ShelterBox Australia
ShelterBox is a cutting-edge charity that hand-delivers emergency shelter for families devastated by natural disaster and conflict. Our signature ShelterBoxes and ShelterKits contain the tools to transform lives and rebuild communities.
Since its inception, ShelterBox has been intrinsically linked with Rotary. Starting out as a club project in 2000, it has grown to become Rotary International’s Project Partner for disaster relief. ShelterBox works with Rotarians around the world to deliver emergency shelter and essential items following natural disaster and humanitarian crisis.

In 2018 ShelterBox assisted over 42,000 families with emergency shelter and other essential household items. That’s equivalent to more than 210 000 people. With the help of Rotary, ShelterBox has responded 18 times to reach families affected by natural disasters and conflict.

From tropical cyclones, earthquakes, floods, drought and volcanic activity, we have reached across 17 countries. We have worked with Rotary groups and Rotarians around the world to help families in almost all of our 10 responses to natural disasters.

We no longer just respond with ShelterBoxes, our inventory includes different types of tents to suit a range of conditions, shelter kits and tarpaulins to repair damaged homes and essential items like water filters and solar lights. Our aspiration is that no family goes without shelter following disasters. You can help us achieve this aim.

ShelterBox has 17 global affiliates, all dedicated to raising funds for and awareness of disaster relief. The organisation continues to research and develop its equipment, train its volunteer ShelterBox Response Team members (SRTs) and position stocks so that it can respond effectively and immediately to the next major disaster. Your support is greatly appreciated.
