Summary

ShelterBox is a charity that delivers aid to families devastated by conflict or natural disaster, to give them durable shelter and the tools to rebuild communities. This could be a family-sized tent or it could be heavy duty tarpaulins, ropes and nails to create emergency shelters. COVID-19 has added immense further pressure to devastated communities. ShelterBox is 20 years old in 2020! The Rotary Club of Hitchin Tilehouse aims to raise 12,000, being the approximate cost of 20 Shelter Boxes.

Challenge

ShelterBox teams work with disaster-hit families around the world, offering emergency shelter and other essential items to support them in rebuilding their lives. Every disaster is different and so is every community, so ShelterBox spends time with those affected to make sure the right support can be offered at the right time to help them recover. ShelterBox helps those affected by natural disasters, eg. tsunamis, earthquakes, floods and volcanoes, as well as those caught up in conflict.

Solution

Your donation will help ShelterBox provide basic items of equipment, allowing families who may have lost everything to start the long, slow process to recovery. Having somewhere safe, dry and warm to sleep, enabling families to prepare meals and stay together but also socially distance is vital for rebuilding the lives of those affected by disaster. Blankets, solar lights and cooking sets provide a sense of comfort and relief, giving people space to heal from physical and emotional trauma.

Long-Term Impact

The aid from ShelterBox has allowed those caught up in conflict and disaster to re-start their lives, reducing hunger and poverty. Good health and prevention of disease are promoted through the provision of clean water and mosquito nets. Rebuilding homes and the provision of appropriate tools allow people to support themselves, sometimes starting their own business. This enables them to provide for their families and ensure that their children continue their education, reducing inequality.
