Because of the devastating drought in Somaliand, Bihi's main concern was finding food and shelter for his family.
With support from people like you, ShelterBox helped Bihi and others like him by providing tarpaulin for necessary shelter from harsh weather, as well as water filters, mosquito nets, and solar lights. "We are very grateful for what we have received," Bihi said. "Thank you for this." #NoFamilyWithoutShelter

Support from people like you enabled us to deliver aid to 1,909 families in #Kenya who were forced to flee their homes after heavy flooding earlier this year. There have been some big challenges along the way, including finding a way to overcome Kenya's single-use plastics ban, but we were determined to get aid to the families who needed it most .

Having a warm, safe place to be out of the elements is critical to a family's ability to begin recovering from disaster. On this International Day for Disaster Reduction, we join the humanitarian community in striving to reduce risks people affected by disasters face by giving them the tools to start rebuilding their lives.

On this day in 2005, a major earthquake struck the Kashmir region, killing more than 70,000 people and leaving an estimated 3.5 million homeless. ShelterBox immediately sent volunteers and tents to the region, working with local Rotary Clubs and Pakistani government agencies, providing shelter for up to 138,000 people.

Natural disasters and conflicts disproportionately endanger women and girls. We work to address this by providing our aid to the most vulnerable people. On this International #DayoftheGirl, we're joining the global community in highlighting challenges for girls and celebrating their strength.

Of the aid items we provide, the Indonesian government has indicated that tents, ShelterKits, and water filters are the items that families affected by the recent #earthquake and #tsunami in #Sulawesi need the most.
We have this aid ready to go and we are doing all we can to make sure it gets to families who need it.

Severe drought in #Somaliland has affected an estimated 766,000 people since November 2016, leading to the displacement of thousands of families.

As the drought continues, we are working closely with our partner #ActionAid to ensure that families have safe shelter throughout Somaliland.

The latest phase of our distributions reached a further 440 households bringing the total for the third phase up to 860.

Congratulations to our ambassador Erik Elsea for completing the Mississippi Expedition for ShelterBox! He spent the last 90 days canoeing the entire Mississippi River and along the way, he has been raising awareness of our work.

He visited more than 50 Rotary Clubs and has raised more than $50,000 to provide emergency shelter and supplies to people in need.

It's not too late to support him. Honor Erik's incredible journey by making a donation to his fundraising page:
