OUR COMMITMENT

Fatnizar, Earthquake & Tsunami in Indonesia 2018

LE TTER FR O M T HE P R E S ID E N T Everything we do at ShelterBox is fueled by our vision of a world where no family goes without shelter. We recognize the critical role that we play in emergency response and in empowering families with the tools they need to begin their recovery. We are now witnessing the highest levels of displacement on record. An unprecedented 85 million people around the world have been forced from home because of conflict and disaster. This staggering number is only predicted to grow. As part of our 2025 Strategic Plan, we are prioritizing initiatives that scale up our efforts to bring shelter to more families displaced by conflict and disaster. We are working to bring emergency shelter interventions that enable people to begin to rebuild their lives and that keep communities together. When I think about an example of our impact in action in 2018, I am transported to Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, where our ShelterBox Response Teams met Fatnizar. After an earthquake and tsunami destroyed Fatnizar’s home in Tondo Village, she took shelter in an open field with 121 other families. It was one month after the tsunami when the Response Team found her living under a tarpaulin. Soon after meeting her, we provided Fatnizar and her community with ShelterBox tents and essential aid items. When our team returned one week later, they found her sewing under the awning of her tent. Not only did Fatnizar gain a place to call home, but she now had a space to return to her work as a seamstress, gaining an income again and a path to recovery.

People like Fatnizar are the reason we continue to work tirelessly toward a world where no family goes without shelter. As a result, we are making progress toward our 2025 goals. • In 2018, we responded in 17 countries, helping more than 210,000 people that were displaced from natural disaster and conflict situations. • We focus on meeting the unique needs of each community we are responding to. • We are developing regional operational hubs to increase our effectiveness and efficiency in disaster prone areas, like the Philippines, where we registered and opened a warehouse in Cebu, and now have local staff and pre-positioned aid materials in-country. • We are increasing and deepening our partnerships with local and international NGOs, to increase our capacity to reach the most vulnerable people displaced in some of the most challenging-to-reach places in the world. • We are building a best in class Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEAL) Program to understand the impact our aid has on the people who received it, and to gather critical information on how we can adapt and ensure we are increasing capacity for recovery and/or improving resilience. In 2018, we maintained Charity Navigator’s four-star rating for the third year in a row, an accomplishment only 24 percent of charities have achieved. We also received the GuideStar Platinum seal, which demonstrates our commitment to transparency. ShelterBox remains Rotary International’s official project partner in disaster relief. Rotarians around the world support our work in numerous ways, from serving as volunteer Ambassadors and Response Team Members, to assisting us locally on the ground as translators, hosts, community liaisons and more. We were honored to be nominated for the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition for our humanitarian efforts to support families fleeing the world’s most extreme conflict zones. Our work in places like Syria, the Lake Chad Basin, and refugee camps in Bangladesh helps keep families together during chaos and uncertainty. The work of ShelterBox would not be possible without the generosity of the ShelterBox community. Thank you for being part of it. Your involvement is very meaningful, and we appreciate everything you do to help us reach families displaced by disaster and conflict. Your support transforms lives.

Nimo, mother of seven, Drought in Somaliland. Severe drought has affected around 766,000 people since November 2016. Many are pastoralists and have lost up to 85% of their herds. With the support of our in-country partner Action Aid, we’ve been able to provide aid to 2,000 families with tarpaulins, mosquito nets, kitchen sets, a toolkits, ground mats, solar lights and water carriers.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT WE PREPARE EVERY DAY FOR DISASTER Natural disasters and conflicts never take days off, and neither do we. We pre-position aid in locations across the globe, so it is never far from where it may be needed.

WE PUT FAMILIES FIRST

We work tirelessly with our partners and community leaders to provide the most vulnerable families, often women and children, with the emergency shelter and supplies needed to bring protection, warmth, and recovery after disaster.

WE GO THE LAST MILE

We are nimble. Our training and our expertise in emergency response enables us to reach the most remote communities in the world that have been devastated by disaster to make sure that no one gets forgotten or left behind.

WE ADAPT

We don’t believe that one size fits all. We work hard to understand the impact of each emergency and the need this creates within individual communities.

WE RETURN

Our work isn’t done until we know that we’ve provided the right materials to help people transform their lives. We test and evaluate all of the aid we provide by talking to, working alongside, and learning from, the families who use it.

OUR COMMITMENT

WHY SHELTERBOX IS NEEDED EVERY MINUTE, 20 PEOPLE ARE FORCIBLY DISPLACED, DRIVEN BY CONFLICT TO FLEE THEIR HOMES.

There are more than 85 million people globally displaced and in need of shelter, the greatest number since World War II. Many of them struggle to meet their basic needs for food, water and shelter. With no shortage of natural disasters or conflict, ShelterBox is preparing everyday for the worst day ever. All displaced people need some form of shelter. Whatever the type of shelter which is found, provided or built, it must satisfy multiple needs: protection from the elements, physical security,

safety, comfort, emotional security, some mitigation of risk and unease, and even some semblance of home and community. Shelter helps keep communities and families together in times when they need each other the most. ShelterBox assists in the immediate response and early recovery phase. Temporary shelter is a crucial step of recovery and reconstruction in the aftermath of disasters until permanent housing solutions are available.

Refugee Children, near Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, Rohingya Crisis. Around 688,000 people have entered Bangladesh since August 2017. With little to no resources, these families have been forced to set up makeshift camps in crowded conditions. We have supported 4,000 families with blankets for warmth, tarpaulins, rope for shelter, solar lights and water carriers.

S HE L T E RB O X US A | ANNUA L REPORT 2 0 1 8


IT WAS A SUMMER DAY IN 2017 WHEN YAZIDA’S LIFE CHANGED FOREVER. “The military came in and started firing at us. They killed the men and raped many women, so we fled from our country. They stole all of our possessions, our money, our ornaments, even our clothes.” Yazida’s husband was brutally murdered during the attacks on her village. Suddenly, she went from being a wife and mother of a two-year-old girl, to a widow at the age of 18. To save her life and that of her young daughter, Yazida had to flee. She walked for two days from Myanmar to Bangladesh, struggling to carry her daughter the entire way. As a Rohingya Muslim, Yazida was part of a group targeted for their faith. Every minute, more families, just like Yazida’s, lose everything in the chaos of conflict. Their homes, their livelihoods, and even family members are brutally taken away.

NOBEL PEACE PRIZE NOMINATION ShelterBox is honored to have been nominated for the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize. Our work keeps families together during a time of unprecedented displacement. The nomination was a recognition of our humanitarian efforts to help families caught in some of the world’s most extreme conflicts. This nomination would not have been possible without the dedication and generosity of our supporters, volunteers and partners at home and throughout the rest of the world. Thank you.

When missiles and mortars leave cities in ruins, when troops storm villages, when families fear for their lives, shelter can cut through the chaos. ShelterBox’s work keeps families and communities together to mitigate the consequences and escalation of violence. Critical to peace building is the ability to operate in many of the world’s most extreme conflict zones. ShelterBox combines its experience in providing emergency shelter with critical partnerships to reach areas of the world traditionally cut off from humanitarian assistance. In addition to our partnership with Rotary International , ShelterBox collaborates with many global humanitarian aid agencies, including UNHCR, International Federation of the Red Cross, Amnesty International, Habitat for Humanity, UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders, and Médecins Sans Frontières. Our in-country distribution partners help us provide aid in some of the most remote and dangerous conflict zones around the world. These networks, rooted in communities, help ShelterBox go the last mile to deliver a diverse range of emergency shelter aid to the most remote and vulnerable people.

In 2018, ShelterBox continued to provide shelter and essentials to families struggling to rebuild after Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated the Caribbean in fall 2017. We delivered aid to 1,950 families across six countries, tailoring our response to best support different communities.

In Ethiopia, over two million people have been forced to flee because of violent conflicts in the Guji-Gedo zone. In fall of 2018, through a partnership with the International Organization of Migration (IOM), ShelterBox distributed aid to 1,995 families in West Guji who were sheltering with host communities.

From March to May 2018, Kenya experienced the heaviest rains in the past 55 years and flood waters took weeks to recede. Partnering with the Kenyan Red Cross Society, we distributed ShelterKits and other essential aid items to a total of 2,000 families.

OUR GLOBAL RESPONSE

Lake Chad Basin Crisis The Lake Chad Basin is an area in crisis. Spanning across four of the world’s poorest countries, including Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon, the Lake Chad Basin humanitarian crisis has left millions of local people devastated, homeless and malnourished - yet this “forgotten crisis” has gone largely unreported.

Extreme poverty, underdevelopment, and climate change are just some of the factors at play, alongside growing insecurity caused by attacks of extremist militant group Boko Haram. The terrorist organization has caused violent conflict in Nigeria since 2009, which has spread to neighboring countries of Chad, Cameroon and Niger.

TO DATE SHELTERBOX HAS SHELTERED OVER 11,000 FAMILIES ACROSS THE LAKE CHAD BASIN.

20

S HE L T E RB O X US A | ANNUAL REPORT 2 0 1 8

Over half of those in the affected area need support. Families are living in overcrowded camps in which there are food and water shortages, unhygienic living conditions, limited privacy, cholera epidemics and overall insecurity. Ongoing support from partners like Rotary and LDS Charities enables ShelterBox to respond to this forgotten crisis. In 2018, we have been able to continue our work with four other in-country aid agencies, to distribute water carriers, blankets, tarpaulins, kitchen sets, buckets and solar powered lights to the region.


Harmata’s Story Harmata lives with her six children in a camp for internally displaced families in the Lake Chad Basin. A violent attack forced them to flee from their village.

“If I had stayed, I would be dead,” she said. “I didn’t have time to take any of my belongings. I was going into the unknown and the most important thing for me was to have my life saved with my children.” After arriving at the camp, Harmata received aid from ShelterBox which was supported by our partner LDS Charities and distributed by our inplementing partner in country, ICAHD. “These items are very useful to me. A child’s mother naturally needs household items to be able to prepare food for her children,” she said. “As soon as I received the items, I quickly started to put the pot on the fire and prepare porridge for my family. I am very happy with everything I have received.”

OUR GLOBAL RESPONSE

A Drought in Somaliland Somaliland has two rainy seasons, April-June and October-November. The last rainy season was below average for the fourth consecutive season. The majority of rural communities in Somaliland are nomadic pastoralists. Extreme weather is the biggest threat to pastoralists, with 85% of livestock lost last year. The continuing drought has forced communities to move increasingly large distances to seek fresh food for their animals and consequently, these communities are now displaced and destitute. ShelterBox and our in-country partner ActionAid have coordinated a three-phase response to deliver aid to the most vulnerable. To date, 3,441 families have received aid, including 4,000 tents, 6,000 tarpaulins, 15,000 blankets, 6,000 solar lights, 6,000 mosquito nets, 6,000 water carriers and 4,000 water filters. Our upcoming phase of this project will include the distribution of tarps, rope and tool bags. This distribution has been adapted to meet the specific needs of nomadic communities, like Muna’s.

“See the place we are living, we do not have a proper shelter. So this is very useful and it suits us. We are very grateful for what we have received. Thank you for this.” – Bihi, Somaliland

OUR GLOBAL RESPONSE

A Crisis in Syria Since 2011, the conflict in Syria has displaced over six million people and claimed the lives of over half a million people. Many fled with nothing but the clothes on their backs, their homes destroyed and their families torn apart. While the course of the conflict seems to change daily in the headlines, the situation on the ground remains desperate, with only a fraction of the displaced population receiving the aid they urgently need.

Abdul’s Story DISPLACED 10 TIMES IN 6 YEARS Abdul’s displacement journey started when the fighting and battles reached his city in Homs Province. Abdul lost his right hand when a tank bomb targeted the home in which his family and a few others were hiding. Abdul, who lost both his forearm and his livelihood as a tailor, received training and a ShelterKit, among other items, through LDS Charities’ support. Now that Abdul has constructed a safe place to call home, his hope is to get a prosthetic arm to continue his profession. After that he will look for a wife and start a family of his own.

OVER 5.6 MILLION SYRIANS HAVE BECOME REFUGEES AND MORE THAN HALF OF ALL SYRIANS HAVE BEEN FORCED TO FLEE THEIR HOMES.

ShelterBox Partners with LDS Charities LDS Charities and ShelterBox have established a strong relationship that has empowered 30,000 children, women, and men with essential shelter and tools to positively affect the recovery of their families and their communities after disaster.

Syria: Emergency Shelter for 1,200 Displaced Families In April, LDS Charities partnered with ShelterBox to provide 6,000 vulnerable children, women, and men in Idlib, Syria with shelter and other support in arguably the most dangerous place to deliver aid in the world. ShelterKits, high thermal quilted blankets, mattresses, kitchen sets, water carriers, and solar lights provide safety, warmth, light, and means to provide nourishment for families who have lost loved ones and have been displaced multiple times over the course of the war.

“What is particularly unique about LDS Charities is their support of our work in conflict areas, which are our longest responses, but often fall out of the headlines. Without LDS Charities, we would not be able to provide the basic and essential resources for families to feel safe, to heal, and to start the long road to recovery.”– Kerri Murray, President, ShelterBox USA

OUR GLOBAL RESPONSE

Earthquake & Tsunami in Indonesia In August and September of 2018, Indonesia was hit by two devastating earthquakes and a tsunami. Across the islands of Lombok and Sulawesi, half a million people were displaced. ShelterBox responded on both occasions, providing shelter and support to some of the most vulnerable and isolated communities. With the support of our incredible Rotary partners, we worked with the Indonesian government on both occasions to help families in remote villages that were left with nothing. ShelterBox distributed much-needed tents, water purification sets, water carriers and mosquito nets to communities which had been without electricity and other necessities for days, using every mode of transport at our disposal.

OUR PARTNERSHIP

ShelterBox Partnership We are proud project partners with Rotary International, a global community of 1.2 million people of action. By working together with Rotary, we collaborate and combine resources to ensure that we can support more communities in desperate need of shelter. There are so many ways Rotarians support families who have lost everything, from raising awareness and funds at home to providing a valuable point of contact for response teams to first-hand knowledge, introductions, logistical assistance, and vital links into the communities affected by disaster. Our partnership enables us to cross boundaries and work together to reach even the most remote communities. It also enables Rotarians to take action by connecting their own communities directly with disaster-affected communities worldwide.

TOGETHER, SHELTERBOX AND ROTARY ARE PROVIDING HOPE, SECURITY, AND THE MEANS TO RECOVER AFTER DISASTERS STRIKE.

Ace’s Story Ace Robin, President of the Rotary Club of Mataram, was caught up in the deadly earthquakes that hit Lombok in 2018. Her home survived, but many around her were destroyed. Through an agreement with the government-led response, Ace’s club was central to bringing ShelterBox aid to Indonesia and reaching vulnerable families.

“I was in the house by myself when the earthquake hit. For the first time in my life, I thought everything would finish. Working with ShelterBox taught us a lot – they showed us how to build shelter and select families to help. It also gave us a chance to show what Rotary is to local people.” -Ace Robin ShelterBox is a charity independent of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation.

SHELTERBOX & ROTARY IN THE PHILIPPINES

The Philippines is one of the world’s worst disaster-affected countries. On average, we respond there nearly twice a year to natural disasters. By working closely with local Rotary groups, we have created ShelterBox Operations Philippines, a locally registered NGO run by ShelterBox Operations HQ in the UK. Having an office allows us to respond and distribute emergency shelter aid quickly and efficiently, whenever disaster strikes. This is a first for ShelterBox – setting up ShelterBox Operations Philippines and having aid stored in Cebu is an achievement we are proud of. It’s a great example of our flexible and agile model at work – ensuring we’re well placed to reach families as quickly as possible in the aftermath of disaster.

OUR DEDICATED SUPPORTERS

ShelterBox Response Team 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). ShelterBox recruits volunteers who can commit long-term, who are available for a period of at least five years, and who deploy twice each year for up to three weeks at a time. The selection process is highly competitive with 1 in 30 applicants making it through the training. The role is mentally and physically demanding.

SRT Member: Brian Glenn Glenn, an SRT member since 2012 has deployed seven times. In August 2018, Glenn was part of the first team on the ground in Indonesia after a powerful 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck Lombok. Glenn had to assess the damage, establish good connection with the local government and Rotary, and evaluate the best route for delivering aid. When Glenn was called back to Indonesia in November 2018 – this time to Sulawesi – he immediately got on a helicopter to start distributing shelter aid to a community cut off from all other contact.

“As SRTs, we’re laying the groundwork, we’re warehousing, trucking, and identifying the right people who need help.” -Brian Glenn 30

ShelterBox Innovator How one man is building philanthropy into his business

From an early age, Brian Fox was surrounded by philanthropy. His father, an active Rotarian, raised Fox not only to give back, but to stand up for positive change in the world. This ignited a passion for charity work in Fox that drove him to find new and creative ways to incorporate philanthropy into his daily life. Fueled by his desire to serve others, Brian Fox has combined his career in real estate with his love for philanthropy by providing homes to displaced families around the world through the work of ShelterBox. Fox, a realtor in Southern California, first heard about ShelterBox in passing from a family friend. Inspired by the mission of ShelterBox, Fox created a sell-one-give-one model where for every house sold, he gives a home to a family who has lost everything after disaster by donating the cost of one ShelterBox.

“We are pioneering it but it’s very easily obtainable, you can easily show the impact and it’s an easy model to recreate. The need for shelter is a constant problem that we can attack on an ongoing basis.” - Brian Fox

Fox’s vision goes far beyond his own generosity. He hopes to spark a movement that encourages all real estate agents, brokers, and the like to follow suit. “Our goal is to do a one-to-one shelter every time we sell a home,” says Fox. He is determined to grow the one for one shelter model to make a global impact in the future.

SINCE JANUARY 2018, BRIAN FOX HAS DONATED 15 HOMES Learn more about this innovative program by visiting ShelterBoxUSA.org/giveahome S H EL T ER B OX U S A | A N NU A L RE P O RT 2018

ShelterBox Ambassador Erik Elsea paddled the full length of the Mississippi River to raise funds for ShelterBox USA. He reached the Gulf of Mexico on Oct. 5, 2018, 90 days after he began his trip on July 7 at the Mississippi Headwaters in Itasca State Park in Minnesota. Along the way, Elsea gave presentations about ShelterBox to more than 60 Rotary clubs along the route, many of which supported his effort. In total, Elsea raised more than $69,000, enough to shelter over 69 families. As a result, Elsea was the top fundraising ambassador in 2018, earning him a trip to visit ShelterBox headquarters in Cornwall, England. Elsea first learned about the opportunity to volunteer with ShelterBox through the Cape Coral Rotary Club, where he recently served as Club President.
