Challenge

The drought affecting the Eastern Horn of Africa is the worst the region has seen in 60 years. Millions of families have been affected by massive water and food shortages, and the drought and on-going conflict in Somalia is causing families to flee their homes, with thousands arriving at refugee camps in Kenya and Ethiopia every day. The need for shelter is evident and we're helping the most vulnerable. More info: http://shelterboxusa.org/news.php?id=781.

Solution

ShelterBox delivers humanitarian aid in the form of shelter and life-saving equipment to disaster survivors. We are providing families in these countries with the tools they need to survive and rebuild their lives, including a rugged tent, water purification system, cook-stove, blankets and other essentials. With your help, we'll be able to send additional equipment as and when it is needed and secure aid to ensure rapid response in preparation for the next inevitable disasters.

Long-Term Impact

ShelterBoxes help families rebuild their lives after losing everything in a disaster. Since 2000, ShelterBox has helped over a million disaster survivors in more than 70 countries. Our vision is to shelter at least 500,000 disaster survivors annually.
