We Can All be Heroes with ShelterBox

ShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that hand-delivers emergency shelter and the tools families need to self-recover after natural disasters and conflict around the world. 

As official Project Partners in disaster relief, Rotary and ShelterBox work together to ensure that no family is left without shelter after disasters strike. The partnership enables ShelterBox to collaborate and combine resources to ensure that we can support more communities in desperate need of shelter. 

A shelter is more than a roof, it's a home.

Recovery starts with shelter. Having somewhere dry and warm to sleep, to prepare meals and be with your family, is vital for starting the long process of recovery. 

Please make a donation to help families in need. Together, with your support, we can ensure that no family is left without shelter after a disaster.

Up to 1.9 million people in #Gaza - more than 85% of the population - are displaced from their homes. Nowhere is safe, with civilians unable to leave.

ShelterBox is responding. Together with our partner, MAP, we will be providing #EmergencyShelter and other aid items to thousands of people who need it most in Gaza.

As a humanitarian organization, ShelterBox must remain neutral and apolitical. We go wherever the humanitarian need of civilians is the highest, and right now that is in Gaza.

Please, if you can, donate today and help us reach more people with life-saving aid in Gaza and around the world.
ShelterBox is responding in Morocco, supporting thousands of people left homeless by the 6.8 magnitude earthquake which struck on September 8th. Funds raised with us can go towards hard-to-get tents, thermal blankets, solar lights and kitchen sets, where these villages have largely been reduced to rubble, leaving people little option but to sleep in the open or in large, communal tents.
Our Rotary network is liaising closely with local authorities and ShelterBox team members. ShelterBox is using their supply chain expertise, and navigating the necessary logistics to get aid into the country and to the people. They will be looking at items designed for months of use (not weeks) to help with getting through the colder winter weather, in order to shape this response.
We ask for your help to sustain these efforts of disaster relief.
