ShelterBox is the brainchild of Tom Henderson, a kit that can be deployed in circumstances when civilians lose all their possessions. The contents can be tailored to fit the environment and nature of the disaster, and focus on providing shelter, warmth, hope and dignity to those affected.
Henderson began developing his idea in 1999, after discovering most aid is in the form of short term food, water and medicine. ShelterBox is designed to help families rebuild their lives for the following weeks and months. The charity has now provided aid in all seven continents.
The box itself is a masterpiece of design: light enough to be carried by two people, and can be used from anything from storage to a cot. The tent is produced by market leader Vango and can sleep up to ten people, adaptable in its layout and suitable for extreme weather. Other contents of the box include cooking equipment, basic tools and colouring pencils for children. The box supersedes traditional forms of aid by giving those who have been affected control of their own situation.
