The lifesaving work of ShelterBox is only made possible because of the generosity of individuals, foundations, and corporations. In 2017, this private charitable support enabled ShelterBox to provide emergency shelter and supplies to 162,000 people made homeless by disaster and conflict situations. We are sincerely grateful for your participation in ShelterBox.

2017

was an unprecedented year for ShelterBox. With your support, ShelterBox provided shelter and life-saving supplies to more than 162,000 people in 23 countries. It was one of our busiest years to date. ShelterBox Response Teams deployed quickly to the front lines of disaster throughout all of 2017: following Hurricane Harvey in Texas; Hurricanes Irma and Maria in the Caribbean; the Rohingya refugee crisis in Bangladesh; severe drought in Somaliland; devastating flooding in Colombia, Paraguay and Peru; as well as our ongoing commitments in Syria, Iraq and the Lake Chad Basin in Africa. Each year, Rotary helps us to go further, support more people, and access areas that would otherwise be impossible to reach. 2017 was no different. Rotary groups around the world helped us in almost all of the countries in which we operated. ShelterBox remains Rotary International’s Project Partner in disaster relief.

With millions more in need, our team is not losing sight of our ambitious goal to reach one million people annually by 2025. Our ShelterBox USA board and staff both grew in numbers to scale the support needed to help more people. For the first time in the history of ShelterBox USA, both offices were impacted by disaster. In September, Hurricane Irma passed over Sarasota, Florida while, in December, the Santa Barbara, California, office was evacuated because of the Thomas Fire, the largest wildfire in modern California history. Read more about both events on page 24. Going through these experiences gave our staff a new perspective on what it means to be displaced because of disaster and increased our ability to empathize with the families we help. We gained increased visibility for the organization in 2017. We met with FEMA in Washington D.C. during their ‘Partnership Day.’ We were also invited to be present at the Nasdaq bell ringing ceremony in New York on Giving Tuesday. We continue to execute our work with commitment to accountability and transparency and maintained Charity Navigator’s highest four-


WH E N DISA STERS ST RU CK AT H O M E star rating for the second year in a row, a feat only 29 percent of evaluated charities achieve. We became a member of the National Association of Voluntary Organizations Assisting in Disaster Relief (VOAD). Being a part of this coalition provides us with a way to better coordinate and collaborate in response to disasters in the U.S. After Hurricane Harvey, ShelterBox aid arrived in the form of tents, blankets, groundsheets, school kits, and solar lamps. At evacuation centers in and near Houston, ShelterBox USA deployed the “shelter-in-shelter” solution to give doctors, nurses, and individuals privacy and comfort for medical screenings, faith gatherings, lactating mothers, and other needs. The bulk of our work continues to be in conflict situations. Every minute, more families lose everything in the chaos of conflict. We provided aid to families caught in some of the world’s most extreme conflict zones, including Syria’s civil war, Iraq after the fall of Mosul, and the Lake Chad Basin where Boko Haram is spreading violence, and in some of the world’s largest refugee camps like Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh where Rohingyas are fleeing sectarian violence.

We can’t give back what was lost, but we can provide the tools for families and communities to start their own recovery, promoting peace and stability in the face of trauma. With no end in sight to increased occurrences of natural disasters as well as long-term civil conflicts, your support is needed now more than ever. We are working tirelessly to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster and we rely entirely on charitable donations to continue. We’re hammering pegs, tying knots, and building shelter right now for the most vulnerable people in some of the most remote communities. Thank you for being a part of transforming lives.

S H ELTERBOX OPER A T IO N S :

How we do it

PR E- POSI T I ONE D A ID + R A P ID R E S P O N S E ShelterBox is preparing every day for the worst day ever by pre-positioning aid in strategic locations around the globe, ensuring fast and efficient deployment of aid when and where it is needed most. The ShelterBox Operations Team is constantly monitoring global disasters and conflict. Assessments and aid delivery are carried out by the highly trained ShelterBox Response Team (SRT).

LO GI ST I CS ShelterBox is committed to transporting and distributing ShelterBoxes, ShelterKits, and other essential aid into disaster zones in the safest and most efficient way possible, whether it be by road, sea, or air. Pre-positioned aid in strategic locations around the world helps ShelterBox to rapidly mobilize needed resources. Once in-country, SRT members work with community leaders, local authorities, relief agencies, and other partners in the field to deliver aid to those who need it most.

D IST R I BUT I N G A ID ShelterBoxes have been delivered by helicopters, trucks, donkey trains, camels, and even on the backs of volunteers. SRT members make on-the-ground assessments to gather information about those most affected and ensure that emergency aid can be channeled according to the greatest need. ShelterBox works with local communities to identify and prioritize the most vulnerable.

MO NI T O R I N G + E V A L U A TIO N ShelterBox is committed to measuring and evaluating the impact of its work and to improving the quality and effectiveness of the aid it provides. The monitoring and evaluation process includes post-deployment data collection and feedback from aid recipients.   S H EL T ER B OX U S A | A N N U A L RE P O RT 2017

ach disaster is different, and so is every community.

Therefore, ShelterBox relies on its highly trained volunteer response teams and its on-the-ground partners to identify the most pressing and immediate needs of communities in the aftermath of disaster or during conflict. ShelterBox then tailors the aid it provides to meet the specific needs of survivors and their communities, ensuring that only what is needed most is delivered. ShelterBox aid most commonly comes in the form of ShelterBoxes and ShelterKits. Sturdy green ShelterBoxes typically contain family-sized tents specifically designed to withstand the elements and provide people with temporary shelter until they can start the process of rebuilding a home. Customized ShelterKits contain all the essential materials and tools families need to start repairing and rebuilding homes right away, including items such as tarpaulins, hammers, nails and rope. Because a home means much more than bricks and mortar, or tarpaulin and tent pegs, ShelterBoxes and ShelterKits often contain the items that help transform shelter into a home, such as cooking sets, solar lights, thermal blankets, activity sets for children, and occasionally classroom supplies in the form of ShelterBox SchoolBoxes.

ShelterKits are distributed in Haiti following Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

We test and evaluate all the aid we provide by talking to, and learning from, the families who use it. This allows us to continue improving the quality and effectiveness of our response.

helterBox is made up of people who believe that shelter is a human right and is vital in the chaos of disaster and conflict.

ShelterBox delivers aid to the four corners of the earth with the help of an amazing group of dedicated and highly trained volunteers that make up the ShelterBox Response Team (SRT). Volunteer response teams go the extra mile to find the people left most vulnerable after a disaster. For this role, ShelterBox recruits volunteers who can commit long-term. Volunteers must be available to help ShelterBox for a period of at least five years and deploy twice each year for up to three weeks at a time. The selection process is highly competitive – about 1 in 30 applicants make it through training to

become response team members. The assessment process can span up to nine months and includes both a four-day and a nine-day residential predeployment training. The role is mentally and physically demanding. Team members are relied on to be excellent team workers, able to make good decisions under pressure, maintain good relationships with partners and community members, and work in locations with damaged infrastructure, few resources, and vulnerable people that are often experiencing severe trauma.

At a shelter in Crosby, Texas, ShelterBox distributed tents for displaced families, half of whose homes washed away in the hurricane. Many of these vulnerable families have young children and were living in a shelter set up at the American Legion Club.

He fled from the village of Loulou in the islands of the Lake Chad Region with his family following violent attacks from Boko Haram. Every single person from his village fled during this time. Before the attacks, Abdou was a fisherman in his village and took pride in taking care of his family. Sadly, when Boko Haram began attacking the area they lived in, most of the youth were targeted.

Sometimes the youths who were recruited into these groups [Boko Haram] slaughtered the people of my village. We had to save our lives, so we escaped. We searched for refuge and had been welcomed here in Koulkimé. In this escape we lost everything.”

fter suffering the wrath of Hurricane Irma, the Caribbean was pummeled by Hurricane Maria. The arrival of these Category 5 hurricanes made 2017 one of the most ferocious hurricane seasons ever recorded. The Caribbean was badly battered. The prime minister of Barbuda proclaimed the island was “rubble.” After the hurricanes hit, we delivered aid across six countries, tailoring our response to best support different communities. In the Dominican Republic, we supported families to rebuild their homes with the help of a ShelterKit. Elsewhere in the British Virgin Islands, our tents were the best option - creating a warm, safe home while the long clean-up process takes place. For families in Barbuda, this process has taken much longer than other areas as the island was almost completely destroyed after the storms.

otary International has supported ShelterBox from the beginning, when a local Rotary club championed the simple idea to package up essential shelter items in our nowiconic ShelterBoxes. ShelterBox quickly became the largest Rotary project in the world, growing to provide emergency shelter to over 1.3 million people since its founding. As ShelterBox grew, so did Rotary support. The two organizations are now international project partners in disaster relief. Rotarians across the world support ShelterBox in many ways – from raising funds to assisting on the ground during disasters. With more than 33,000 clubs worldwide,

Our work keeps families and communities together, increasing feelings of stability and togetherness during a time of unprecedented global conflict and displacement.

Our work is based on collaboration and a shared vision. We work with many global humanitarian agencies, including UNHCR, Red Cross, Amnesty International, UNICEF, and Médecins Sans Frontières. We are Rotary International’s only project partner in disaster relief.

We can’t give back what was lost, but we can provide the tools for communities to start their own recovery, promoting stability in the face of such huge trauma: Tools to rebuild a home. Solar lights so communities can combat isolation at night. Blankets to keep warm. Mosquito nets and water filters to protect from disease - all vitally important when suddenly you have nothing and you need to rebuild your home and your place in the world.

The students at the Falmouth Maine Middle School students quickly assembled, recruited teachers to work the weekend, and held an Activity-A-Thon raising over $14,000 for the relief efforts of ShelterBox.
