It’s been another busy twelve months for us at ShelterBox. Thanks to all of your generous support we have been able to send ShelterBox aid to help displaced families on over 30 deployments across nearly 20 different countries, responding to typhoons, cyclones, hurricanes, fires, flooding, earthquakes and conflict.
Looking back at a couple of our successes this year, we were the first international aid organisations to distribute relief tents in Lebanon. We are continuing to work with implementing partners to help people displaced inside Syria itself. Currently we are continuing to bring shelter and other vital aid to communities in the Philippines affected by Typhoon Haiyan. A few weeks ago there were five ShelterBox Response Teams (SRTs) in the Asian country. Never before have so many SRT members been deployed at the same time to the same disaster. Together we have helped bring shelter and other vital aid to nearly 13,000 families this year.
Thank you for giving up your time once again to help communities in desperate need. This video looks back at our disaster relief work throughout 2013:
Happy Holidays everybody and we wish you a very happy new year! Thank you!
