ShelterBox responds urgently to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami, or conflict by delivering emergency shelter and other aid, including blankets, water filter and carriers, solar lights, and other essential tools for survival.
In January we heard from Glenn Harris, our area ShelterBox Ambassador, who told us that Shelterbox has evolved over time to more than the one size fits all green boxes – they tailor their responses to each disaster.  This link that shows the ShelterBox basics.  ShelterBox USA - Disaster relief NGO provides emergency shelter
