The ShelterBox solution in disaster response is as simple as it is effective. We deliver the essentials a family needs to survive in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. Each ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster but typically contains a large family sized tent, blankets, water purification equipment, cooking utensils, stove, basic 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 125,000 ShelterBoxes to more than 200 disasters in over 80 countries around the world. The ShelterBox Solution ensures that we are able to send vital aid wherever and whenever it is needed.

Thank you for supporting ShelterBox New Zealand ... what happens next?
ShelterBox specialises in emergency shelter. The charity instantly responds to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict by delivering boxes of aid.
Syrian children discuss escaping the violence in the Syrian Arab Republic and their current situation in Lebanon as refugees. Your donations will help to provide Shelter, Warmth and Dignity for families displaced by conflict.
A ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) from New Zealand has been deployed to the Solomon Islands in response to the undersea earthquake and subsequent 1.5 metres (5ft) high tsunami that hit Temotu Province in the Solomon Islands on the 6th February 2013. ShelterBox Response Team members Lyndon Tamblyn from Bulls, and Owen Smith from Kerikeri, both experienced response team leaders will work alongside staff from World Vision, our partner in the Solomon Islands, who are currently on the ground assessing the damage and the need for shelter. Pre-positioned stocks of tents and ShelterBoxes have been made available for the disaster hit area. Read more here: http://bit.ly/WR2Ipb
ShelterBox, the international disaster relief charity, has stepped in to avert a humanitarian crisis by helping primary school children from Syria. It is mid-morning and Lilaf, 11, has just finished her English lesson. She loves school, particularly history and geography. But she found it hard to answer one question in her textbook: “Where do you live?” There were two options. “I live in a house” or “I live in a flat.” Lilaf lives in a tent. In fact her whole school lives in tents, as does her teacher. Lilaf’s school is in the Domiz refugee camp, near Duhok in northern Iraq. The camp opened last April for Syrians fleeing the civil war in their country. What was a long, flat expanse of nothingness near the mountains of Kurdistan is now home to a sprawling complex of tents, latrines and washing facilities.

Two New Zealand ShelterBox Response Teams (SRT) consisting of Lyndon Tamblyn and Walter van der Kley, both experienced SRTs, have arrived in Apia to assess the need of people affected by the recent cyclone has which ripped through Samoa. ShelterBox NZ also has a team in Fiji Owen Smith and Ross Mackenzie who are responding to the Fijian disaster. Both teams are working to assess the needs of cyclone victims and establish how many people have lost homes. Local Rotarians in Samoa and Fiji will help the teams with information and transport. ShelterBoxes are prepositioned in Auckland and ready for a rapid response to both nations. Additional ShelterBoxes are located in Melbourne with some already in Fiji, left over from flood relief earlier this year. ShelterBox delivers emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to people affected by disaster worldwide. Since 2000 over 125,000 ShelterBoxes have been deployed worldwide. Each ShelterBox costs NZ$1,500 and will support an extended family of up to 10 people for up to six months.

Thousands of people are reported to be in need of temporary shelter having lost their homes to the typhoon. Read more here: http://bit.ly/VUWv8y
ShelterBox has thousands of supporters around the world who each have their own unique fundraising story to tell, be it climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, endurance cycling or hurling themselves out of an airplane to name just a few. Jasmine and Phoebe Benum on the other hand did something a little different to raise funds and awareness for ShelterBox. View their story here: http://bit.ly/WFJil9
