                           • Disasters come in many forms -
                            earthquake; cyclone; flood; refugee
                            displacement - but all share a
                            common factor. The most urgent
                            single problem facing the relief
                            agencies is the provision of a supply
                            of safe drinking-water.
                            In some cases, it may be possible for
                            the relief agencies to supply water
                            from outside the affected area. In
                            others, there is clearly a need for
                            those suffering in the aftermath of a
                            disaster to achieve an early, if
                            temporary, self-sufficiency in the
                            supply of safe drinking-water. The
                            answer is Aquabox.

                              Shelter Box                    “To provide humanitarian aid worldwide in the form of shelter,
                                                                   warmth and comfort to people

A unique solution
Our solution to disasters is the ShelterBox – a tough,
     green plastic box containing a 10-person tent and
     ancillary equipment designed to enable a family of
     up to 10 people survive for at least six months.
Made to a unique design using high quality materials, our
     tents are suitable for a wide range of conditions.
     Other items may include insulated groundsheets,
     thermal blankets, a multi-fuel stove, cooking
     equipment, tools, mosquito nets, water containers
     etc.
ShelterBox works directly with local organisations in
     countries where disasters have occurred, in
     partnership with other aid agencies and through the
     international Rotary network.
Our volunteer teams often oversee the distribution of
     boxes to individual recipients – making sure aid gets
     direct to those people who need it most.
