Every year, hundreds of thousands of families across the world lose everything when disasters strike. Through no fault of their own and often with no warning, families lose their homes, their possessions and their livelihoods. Every day they are faced with a battle for survival and our mission is to help them.

logoShelterBox is the premier international aid organization that provides emergency shelter and life-saving equipment following disasters such as earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict.

ShelterBox was founded in 2000 on a very simple principle: the right to life and dignity. We asked, “What would a family need to survive if they lost their home?” This question became a quest to provide a compact, universal tool kit to families displaced by disasters. ShelterBox would afford dignity, self-sufficiency and most importantly, human survival in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.
In March 2015 Blowing Rock Rotary club members donated $2,250 of their own funds to finance ShelterBox repair kits for Vanuatu families whose homes were destroyed by Cyclone Pam. The repair kits provide tools and supplies to help them rebuild their lives.
The Rotary Club of Blowing Rock has funded nine ShelterBoxes since 2005. Here is a list of where those boxes helped families around the world:
