The emergency aid we supply comes in the form of ShelterBoxes and ShelterKits. Our sturdy green ShelterBoxes contain family-sized tents specially designed to withstand the elements and provide people with temporary shelter until they are able to start the process of rebuilding a home.
Our ShelterKits contain all of the essential tools people need to start repairing and rebuilding homes straight away.
