The ShelterBox solution in disaster response is as simple as it is effective. It delivers the essentials that people need to survive and begin to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of a disaster.

ShelterBox aid is tailored to a disaster but typically includes a disaster relief tent for a family, thermal blankets and groundsheets, water storage and purification equipment, solar lamps, cooking utensils, a basic tool kit, mosquito nets and children’s activity pack.
