Jesse updated us on ShelterBox. Our club has been a longtime supporter of this organization. ShelterBox responds to disasters, armed conflicts where people are displaced, hurricanes, typhoons etc. with supplies, tents, cooking utensils, blankets and other items.
Currently ShelterBox has responded to the following countries:
  Philippines (Super typhoon Rai); Haiti (Hurricane); Yemen (civil war, starvation, failing economy); Syria (ongoing conflicts and emergency levels of coronavirus).; Lake Chad Basin (Boko Haram Insurgency displaced 10+ Million people).: Mozambique (violent attacks by Islamic extremist group). Ethiopia (Armed conflicts). Burkina Faso (1 million people forced to flee homes because of extremist violence).
They also continue to monitor conditions in Tonga as the volcano erupts.

Today, around 113 million people around the world have been displaced by natural disaster and conflict. ShelterBox is actively working to change this.

They are constantly providing emergency shelter and tools to displaced families around the world. Natural disasters and conflicts never take days off, and neither does ShelterBox. They are always on the ground, working to help the most vulnerable, no matter how remote. ShelterBox wants to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster. Find out more about us.
