What you can do
Families around the world affected by disasters need our support more than ever to help recover and build back stronger. The aid ShelterBox delivers varies depending on the nature of the crisis they’re responding to, but can consist of tents, kits with tools to rebuild homes, solar lights, water purification systems and cooking sets (you can read more about the aid they provide here: https://www.shelterbox.org/shelter/aid).
Another neat way of getting involved is to join the ShelterBox Book Club. You choose an amount to pay each month, and in return receive a new book to read and discuss every 6 weeks. You also receive updates about ShelterBox’s operations, so it’s a great way of keeping yourself informed too: https://www.shelterbox.org/book-club/
Whilst the main purpose of this is to raise funds, if you don’t feel you’re able to contribute financially, taking time to look into the work ShelterBox does and spreading the word further is a positive outcome too (their website is a good starting point https://www.shelterbox.org, and they also have a lot of good video content available on Youtube: https://m.youtube.com/user/ShelterBoxUK)
