Thank you for helping ShelterBox provide emergency tented shelter and supplies to families that have lost their homes and possessions following natural disasters and conflict around the world, and allowing them to rebuild their lives with dignity and in safety.

ShelterBox continues to respond to natural disasters and conflict across the globe. Your support has helped ShelterBox deliver boxes and other emergency supplies to Syrian families that continue to flee to neighboring countries as a result of the ongoing conflict and violence in the country, as well as families impacted by the typhoon in the Philippines and the flooding in Serbia and Bosnia.

Syrian Crisis

It’s been three years since the conflict broke out in Syria. Over 9 million people have been forced from their homes in the war-torn country having been exposed to violence and unremitting fighting. The majority now remains within the borders with no home to go to and no possessions. Over 2.7 million refugees, three quarters of them being women and children, still seek safety and shelter across neighboring countries.

The vast majority of fleeing families arrive with little more than the clothes on their backs. Many are injured from continuous bombing and shelling. They have no regular food and no income. Men, women and children are suffering through no fault of their own. They are in desperate need of shelter and other vital supplies. ShelterBox has sent aid to support over 5,000 families in Syria, Iraqi Kurdistan, Lebanon and Jordan in some truly challenging situations.

In Syria we are working with aid agencies who are acting as our partners, delivering essential aid to families fleeing conflict, including emergency shelter, blankets, water filtration equipment and carriers, cooking utensils, mosquito nets and children’s activity packs. ShelterBox continues to work with multiple implementing partners across various hubs to deliver much needed emergency shelter to vulnerable families in need.

Your support has provided hope, comfort and a sense of normalcy to those who would otherwise be living in fear - thank you.

Philippines

In November 2013, the Philippines was hit by Super Typhoon Haiyan, with winds of 195mph, leaving thousands of people homeless. To date, ShelterBox has distributed shelter to help over 7,000 families in need of shelter and assistance. Residents have begun rebuilding their homes and communities. Even businesses have reopened using ShelterBox toolkits sourced from prepositioned stock nearby.

With your help, ShelterBox response teams continue to work in the country, identifying ongoing needs and assisting with the transition to the recovery phase.

Serbia and Bosnia

Both areas were overwhelmed with unprecedented torrential rain that caused widespread flooding, forcing thousands of people from their homes.  ShelterBox has sent tents, water filters and carriers, blankets, groundsheets and solar lamps. Mosquito nets have been provided in Serbia and Bosnia to help protect families against the threat of waterborne diseases. 

ShelterBox continues to work with local entities, including Rotary clubs, to deliver this vital aid to the families that need it most. 

Your support provides shelter and supplies that allow these disasters the realization of shelter, warmth and dignity, thank you.

Bolivia

In February, heavy rains caused slow onset flooding across the center and northern parts of the land-locked Latin American country. Thousands of families in the area had no choice but to uproot and leave their homes and belongings behind in search of other shelter. ShelterBox, working with Rotary and Oxfam, delivered emergency shelter and vital supplies to families forced from their homes due to widespread flooding. 

Thanks to supporters like you, hundreds of families in Bolivia now have the shelter and protection needed to assist them in rebuilding and moving towards the future.

Zimbabwe

Flash flooding in early 2014 forced thousands of families in Zimbabwe’s Masvingo province from their homes.  Many left with only the possessions they carried.  ShelterBox, working with various partners, provided emergency shelter to the victims of the flooding. 

With your support, these families now have shelter and can begin to rebuild their communities.

Other areas of disaster or conflict

ShelterBox continues to monitor and assess disasters and conflict in areas such as Paraguay, Myanmar and the Central Africa Republic to determine need as well as ShelterBox’s ability to assist.  With your support, ShelterBox can continue to provide emergency shelter and aid to survivors of disasters and conflict throughout the world, thank you.

ShelterBox Deployment Brief - March 2014

Thank you for helping ShelterBox provide emergency tented shelter and supplies to families that have lost their homes and possessions following natural disasters and conflict around the world, and allowing them to rebuild their lives with dignity and in safety.

 

ShelterBox continues to respond to natural disasters and conflict across the globe. Your support has helped ShelterBox deliver boxes and other emergency supplies to Syrian families that continue to flee to neighboring countries as a result of the ongoing conflict and violence in the country, as well as families impacted by the typhoon in the Philippines and the flooding in Bolivia and Zimbabwe.

 

Syrian Crisis

It’s been three years since the conflict broke out in Syria. Over 9 million people have been forced from their homes in the war-torn country having been exposed to violence and unremitting fighting. The majority now remains within the borders with no home to go to and no possessions. Over 2.5 million refugees, three quarters of them being women and children, still seek safety and shelter across neighboring countries.

The vast majority of fleeing families arrive with little more than the clothes on their backs. Many are injured from continuous bombing and shelling. They have no regular food and no income. Men, women and children are suffering through no fault of their own. They are in desperate need of shelter and other vital supplies. ShelterBox has sent aid to support over 5,000 families in Syria, Iraqi Kurdistan, Lebanon and Jordan in some truly challenging situations.

ShelterBox continues to work with multiple implementing partners across various hubs to deliver much needed emergency shelter to vulnerable families in need.

Your support has provided hope, comfort and a sense of normalcy to those who would otherwise be living in fear - thank you.

 

Philippines

In November 2013, the Philippines was hit by Super Typhoon Haiyan, with winds of 195mph, leaving thousands of people homeless. To date, ShelterBox has distributed shelter to help 6,200 families in need of shelter and assistance.

 

It has been four months since the typhoon made landfall and communities have begun rebuilding their homes. Even businesses have reopened using ShelterBox toolkits sourced from prepositioned stock nearby.

 

With your help, ShelterBox response teams continue to work in the country, identifying ongoing needs and assisting with the transition to the recovery phase.

 

Bolivia

ShelterBox has sent aid from its prepositioned stock in Panama to help flood survivors in Bolivia rebuild their lives following relentless heavy rains and mudslides. Tens of thousands of people have been forced from their homes across the northwest of the land-locked Latin American country by widespread flooding; many have also lost loved ones.

 

Santa Cruz, Beni, La Paz and Cochabamba are the regions predominantly affected by the extreme weather. People have lost their livelihoods as crops have been damaged and cattle injured. Sixty percent of the roads are spoiled isolating communities from basic services like food, water and fuel. As opposed to sending aid from the ShelterBox headquarters warehouse in the UK, prepositioned ShelterBoxes have been sent from Panama, Central America, enabling the aid to reach the Bolivian communities rapidly and efficiently helping them begin to rebuild their lives.

 

Zimbabwe

ShelterBox is responding to flooding in Zimbabwe’s Masvingo province, following unusual heavy rains that have forced over 2,000 families to uproot their homes, taking with them only the few possessions they can carry.

 

The families had been living along the river basin near the partially constructed Tokwe Murkosi dam. Incessant rains, rare during this time of year, created fears that the dam would overflow. Instead, the river caused severe flooding that has damaged thousands of homes positioned along it.

 

ShelterBox, working with partners, will be providing 800 tents to the area to help flood survivors. It has been estimated that a further 60,000 people downstream from the disaster area are reported to be at risk of flooding if the rain persists.

Thank you for helping ShelterBox provide emergency tented shelter and supplies to families that have lost their homes and possessions following natural disasters and conflict around the world, and allowing them to rebuild their lives with dignity and in safety.

ShelterBox continues to respond to natural disasters and conflict across the globe. Your support has helped ShelterBox deliver boxes and other emergency supplies to families in the Philippines that have lost everything due to Typhoon Haiyan, Syrian families that continue to flee to neighboring countries as a result of the escalating conflict and violence at home country, as well as those affected by widespread flooding in Sudan.


Philippines
The Philippines are hit with typhoons and other tropical storms quite frequently, but none that could ever compare to Typhoon Haiyan, the most powerful storm to every make landfall, which hit the Asian country of islands on November 7, 2013.

Typhoon Haiyan wreaked havoc across the coastal islands of the Philippines causing up to 95% damage in some towns and cities. This left communities reeling but also caused widespread infrastructure and communications damage heavily hampering the ability of governments, aid agencies and NGOs to respond swiftly.

Since then, ShelterBox has been busy helping the most vulnerable families by bringing them emergency shelter and other vital aid at the time when they need it the most. Response Teams are now operating across seven islands, many of which are very isolated. ShelterBox’s operational response to Typhoon Haiyan is proving to be one of the most complex and large scale of recent years.

Where We Are Responding:
ShelterBox Response Teams are operating on the Island of Bohol, where a 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck in October, damaging buildings and infrastructure and claiming lives across the region. ShelterBox immediately sent a response team to the area. The team was distributing aid on Bohol Island when Typhoon Haiyan struck, and has since completed the distribution of ShelterBox tents to earthquake survivors before travelling to join another response team operating in Manila to help oversee the movement of aid through to Cebu Island.

The logistics of getting aid cleared through airports and harbors is, in itself, a challenge due to the damaged infrastructure and the surge of overseas freight arriving in the Philippines. Experience gained from years of responding to disasters such as the earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010 and the tsunami that hit Japan in 2011 has allowed the ShelterBox Operations team to "drip-feed" a constant supply of aid into the Philippines through a variety of different entrance points. This has in turn enabled the Response Teams on the ground in the Philippines to have a continual but manageable flow of aid to distribute amongst the Typhoon affected communities.

On the remote island of Bantayan our response teams have been distributing much needed aid to families who have lost their homes since Typhoon Haiyan hit. The island has a population of 30,000 people and some 27,000 are now feared to be without homes.

With your help, a ShelterBox response team continues to work in the country, identifying unmet needs for emergency shelter and other non-food items.


Syrian Crisis
Some 6.8 million people have been forced from their homes in war-torn Syria, according to the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), having been exposed to violence and unremitting fighting. Many now remain within the borders with no home to go to and no possessions.

There are 1.6 million refugees, three quarters of them being women and children, seeking safety and shelter across neighboring countries. Many are living in flimsy cramped makeshift shelters. The vast majority of fleeing families arrive with little more than the clothes on their backs. Many are injured from continuous bombing and shelling. They have no regular food and no income. Men, women and children are suffering through no fault of their own. They are in desperate need of emergency shelter and other lifesaving supplies. ShelterBox is responding, committing over $1 million of aid to date.

Since last fall, ShelterBox has been providing humanitarian aid to refugee families living in Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey, and continue to work with implementing partners to pipeline ShelterBox aid to internally displaced families within Syria's borders.

Today, a response team has returned to Iraqi Kurdistan where they will distribute aid to refugee families living at Krwigorsk camp, like Qadria and her daughters, who fled Damascus after their home was looted and her husband killed.

Despite the triple-digit temperatures endured by thousands living there, Qadria brought with her several blankets, in preparation for the harsh winter months that await. She is one of 15,000 in the camp today, with thousands more coming each day.

Your support has provided hope, comfort and a sense of normalcy to those who would otherwise be living in fear, thank you.


Sudan
As ShelterBox’s disaster relief efforts continue in the Philippines following Typhoon Haiyan, the charity has been helping communities in need in other disaster-affected countries, one being Sudan.

Thousands of families have been left with close to nothing after floods up to seven feet high inundated the Khartoum state of the African country.  Teams continue to work in the country to identify the most vulnerable of these families, such as 22-year-old Manal and her families.

Manal, a widow who had recently graduated from university with a degree in engineering, is now living in a ShelterBox tent in Al-Kriab with her grandma, mother, sister and two brothers. She told me she studied at Cairo but was unemployed as apparently you need to know people to get a job as a female in Sudan. She had still been helping her community rather than doing nothing by volunteering with the Sudanese Red Crescent who had been helping us set up tents there.

Manal’s older brother supported the family but two months before the flooding he had surgery on his spine. At the time, he could no longer walk or move let alone try and work. Their family home was destroyed except two walls that still stood. The tent has given the family a sense of security there as they now have somewhere permanent to rest until they manage to get some money to begin rebuilding. The kitchen has been set up with the two remaining walls and they are growing their own food.

With your support, ShelterBoxes continues to be distributed to those in need of a temporary home. Other lifesaving supplies in these boxes will protect these families from the elements and enable them to focus on rebuilding their homes, and their lives.



ShelterBox’s vision is to help 50,000 families who lose everything in a disaster every year.

Thank you for helping ShelterBox provide emergency tented shelter and supplies to families that have lost their homes and possessions following natural disasters and conflict around the world, and allowing them to rebuild their lives with dignity and in safety.

ShelterBox continues to respond to natural disasters and conflict across the globe. Your support has helped ShelterBox deliver boxes and other emergency supplies to Syrian families that continue to flee to neighboring countries as a result of the escalating conflict and violence at home country, as well as families impacted by the Oklahoma tornadoes, typhoon in the Philippines, earthquake and flooding in Pakistan, and flooding in India, Niger, Sudan and Uganda.

Your support has provided hope, comfort and a sense of normalcy to those who would otherwise be living in fear, thank you.


Oklahoma
Deadly tornadoes that impacted families in and around Moore, Okla. in May left a trail of destruction. For many weeks, families in Bethel Acres and Little Axe were living in cars, under tarps and in standard tents unsuitable for extreme weather conditions.

As the recovery process continued, it became apparent that, even when developed countries are hit, and there is seemingly overwhelming support for disaster survivors, there can still be a need for ShelterBox to provide its experience and aid to support those vulnerable communities.

For those affected, having privacy and a place to sleep at night and store their belongings would allow them to focus on longer-term recovery aspects and getting life back to normal. Families received more durable ShelterBox relief tents, allowing them to stay in their community - near work, family and other important social structures.’

ShelterBox’s high-quality tent provides families with a temporary solution, bridging the narrow gap between the disaster and until more permanent housing options become available.

With your help, ShelterBox was able to work with local partners to distribute tents to the most vulnerable people in the area.


Philippines
The Philippines was hit by another powerful typhoon, leaving thousands of people homeless on the main northern island of Luzon.

Typhoon Utor made landfall in the main northern island of Luzon in mid-August. With winds up to 115 mph, the Category 3 storm has severely damaged infrastructure and agricultural land, leaving roads inaccessible and affecting communication and electricity services in the area.

Already, communities have begun rebuilding their homes, and even businesses, with toolkits sourced from prepositioned stock nearby. ShelterBox tents are being used to accommodate those in need of medical attention after much of the already small hospital—the only one in four municipalities—had been partially destroyed.

With your help, a ShelterBox response team continues to work in the country, identifying unmet needs for emergency shelter and other non-food items.


Sudan
Thousands of families have been left with close to nothing after floods up to seven feet high inundated the Khartoum state of the African country.  A volunteer response team is working in the country to identify the most vulnerable of these families, such as Faith and his wife and five children, who escaped outside to the only secure place they could find—their car roof.

"When we asked Fatih what his biggest wish for help was he answered ‘a better shelter,’" a response team member said.

With your support, ShelterBoxes are en route to provide Faith and his neighbors with just that, shelter. Other lifesaving supplies in these boxes will protect these families from the elements and enable them to focus on rebuilding their homes, and their lives.


Pakistan
Just months ago, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake destroyed local houses and shops in the isolated area of Mashkail in south-western Parkistan. ShelterBox responded by sending nearly 200 boxes of aid for families in need. Now, with help from implementing partner, the National Rural Support Programme (NRSP), our tents are being distributed to families affected by heavy flooding in the nearby province of Rajanpur.


ShelterBox’s vision is to help 50,000 families who lose everything in a disaster every year.

ShelterBox Update - Deployment Brief June 2013

ShelterBox
ShelterBox's response in Lebanon.

Thank you for helping ShelterBox provide emergency tented shelter and supplies to families that have lost their homes and possessions following natural disasters and conflict around the world, and allowing them to rebuild their lives with dignity and in safety.

ShelterBox continues to respond to natural disasters and conflict across the globe. Your support has helped ShelterBox deliver boxes and other emergency supplies to families affected by the tornado in Oklahoma, conflict in Myanmar, cyclone in Madagascar, flooding in Uganda, earthquakes in Pakistan and the Solomon Islands, flooding in Australia, and the Syrian crisis in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.

Oklahoma
On May 19, a devastating two-mile wide tornado tore through Moore, Okla., with winds up to 200mph destroying neighborhoods, killing dozens, injuring hundreds and displacing thousands.  Members of the highly-trained ShelterBox Response Team (SRT), Wayne Robinson, of Roswell, Ga., and Jeff Deatherage, of Leawood, Ks.,  were immediately deployed to the Oklahoma suburb where they began assessing the need for emergency shelter and other lifesaving supplies for the vulnerable families.

The team worked with local volunteers and emergency mobile phone company, SpareOne, to provide a means of communication to the most vulnerable families.

“The SpareOne phones distributed will allow survivors to have quick access to emergency services and keep in touch with their loved ones at a very difficult time in their lives,” said Emily Sperling, ShelterBox USA president.

Uganda
Having endured conflict, mudslides, a cyclone and severe storms that had swept through the country last year, several regions of Uganda suffered the flooding and damage from torrential rains this spring.

In May, continuous heavy rain fall in the western Kasese region caused what the country’s authorities are calling the “worst flooding since 1976.” Homes were washed away, hospitals inundated and roads made impassable.  The SRT was on the ground immediately, and began working to identify emergency shelter and other non-food item needs among families and communities. ShelterBox partnered with local partners to distribute ShelterBoxes that had been prepositioned in the country's most disaster-prone regions on previous deployments.

In March, torrential rains swept houses away, displacing thousands in the country's southeastern Mbale district, a region that had been hit by three disasters over the past twelve months. A response team collaborated with the Rotary Club of Mbale and local aid agency, Volunteer to Support Children, to distribute boxes to the families that had been left with nothing.

Pakistan
A 7.8-magnitude earthquake destroyed local houses and shops in Mashkail, an isolated area in south-western Parkistan. Although national relief efforts were underway, the isolation caused significant delay in the delivery.  Prepositioned ShelterBoxes in Islamabad held by the National Rural Support Programme (NRSP), and ShelterBox’s implementing partner The Balochistan Rural Support Programme (BRSP), enabled emergency aid to be delivered quickly to the affected families.

Myanmar
Commonly referred to as the Burmese Civil War, conflict and fighting between the Kachin Independence Army and the Myanmar Army restarted in June 2011 after a 17-year-old ceasefire broke down and continued throughout last year. A ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) travelled to Myanmar to meet with local and international agencies to find the most suitable way to support the thousands of families displaced by the conflict. the  to discuss plans with local government and international organizations to find a suitable way to support the thousands of families displaced by the Kachin conflict in the north of the country.

ShelterBox and the Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development (ACTED), agreed to work together to deliver aid to the vulnerable families. A cargo of ShelterBoxes was routed to Myanmar by sea, where ACTED carried out the distribution to families within the Kachin State.

Madagascar
Tropical Cyclone Haruna made landfall over the southwest coast of Madagascar in late February.  The Category 2 storm brought heavy rains that caused a tsunami-type flood with millions of tons of sand and soil that destroyed thousands of homes and nearly 20,000 acres of agricultural land. Tens of thousands of people had lost their homes and belongings in the storm.

Madagascar's desolate landscape and limited road access make it a challenging environment for humanitarian organizations to operate in, as it can be restrictive in transporting aid to those in need in the most hard-to-reach areas. Having previous experience responding in the country, an SRT was able to respond immediately, delivering boxes that had been prepositioned in the country’s capital, Antananarivo, to families in desperate need of emergency shelter and additional lifesaving supplies.

Australia
Tropical Cyclone Oswald caused the banks of the Burnett River to burst in Queensland, after high winds and torrential rain lasted for days.  The city of Bundaberg was one of the hardest hit by 31-foot flood that swept through the northern part of the city, inundating houses with water and mud.

Although the destruction was widespread, the government and local habitants reached out to the many families made homeless by the disaster, and sheltered them in undamaged homes in the area.
 
ShelterBox has recently distributed ShelterBoxes to families displaced by the recent bush fires in Tasmania, that followed the recent devastating floods that caused millions of dollars worth of damage.

Lebanon/Syria
Two years of ongoing conflict and political unrest has caused millions of Syrian families to flee. Since last fall, ShelterBox has been providing humanitarian aid to refugee families living in Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey, and continue to work with implementing partners to pipeline ShelterBox aid to internally displaced families within Syria's borders.

ShelterBox was the first international disaster relief agency to provide tents to Syrian refugees living in Lebanon, and has since distributed nearly 1,000 boxes to families in isolated regions.

Having been working closely with the Lebanese government to identify the need for humanitarian aid since August 2012, ShelterBox was the first agency to respond to the Minister of Social Affair's request for international assistance in January 2013. Because there were no refugee camps in Lebanon, it became obvious that the influx of Syrian families would overwhelm and nearly exhaust the small country's resources.

According to the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), 6.8 million people have been forced from their homes in the war-torn country. Many now remain within the borders, homeless, and without any possessions. After 18 months of studying new routes, the ShelterBox Operations Team believes they have found a new route that will deliver vital equipment across the Syrian borders, directly to the families in need.

Due to its dangerous environment, delivering aid and other survival materials has been extremely difficult for most humanitarian organizations. However, ShelterBox teamed up with Hand for Syria (HIHS), one of the charities present in Syria, to deliver essential aid to Syrians desperately in need.

Today, SRTs continue to deliver emergency shelter and supplies to those who need it most in Lebanon and Jordan.

 

ShelterBox’s vision is to help 50,000 families who lose everything in a disaster every year.
