Shelter for more than 15,000 people in Nepal
ShelterBox was able to provide shelter for more than 15,000 people whose lives were turned upside down following the recent Nepal earthquakes.
Our ShelterBox response teams have been working tirelessly to reach families whose homes have been destroyed or badly damaged.  Help from Rotarians, Rotaract members, local volunteers, and cooperation from other organisations, has been crucial in helping our aid to reach remote communities in Nepal’s mountainous landscape. The need is great. More ShelterBox aid will be arriving so we can continue to provide the shelter to keep families safe and dry before the monsoon rains arrive.
ShelterBox has responded to several disasters in Nepal throughout the years. Most recently ShelterBox provided aid to people who had lost their homes in the north of the country due to flooding and landslides last autumn.
Two natural disasters hit Chile
A  ShelterBox response team has arrived in Chile, as the country is facing two separate natural disasters, leaving communities without homes and shelter. 
The Calbuco volcano has resulted in the evacuation of 6,600 homes. The Atacama region of Chile has suffered from intense rainfall, leading to rivers bursting their banks, flash flooding and landslides. The region got 7 years worth of rain in 1 day. The floods left more than 8,000 families with either damaged or totally destroyed homes.
The ShelterBox team, made up of John Cordell (US), Scott Culbertson (CAN) and Kevin Moforte (US), is working with fellow aid organisation Habitat for Humanity and the Chilean Red Cross Society to provide shelter kits to 1,500 families whose homes have been destroyed or damaged by these events.

The District 3292 Disaster Relief Fund has been supporting ShelterBox during the earthquake response as well as working tirelessly on numerous community projects throughout the affected regions to support the people of Nepal.
