When disaster strikes, families lose their homes, possessions and livelihoods. Every day they are faced with a battle for survival. Each ShelterBox provides a family with emergency shelter and other vital equipment, such as blankets, water filtration, cooking utensils and mosquito nets; to use while they are displaced or homeless.
Flooding in northeast Brazil left 100,000 people homeless. Mrs. Alves, her two-month-old daughter, Emily Maria and five-year-old son, Isaias, were living in an overcrowded school. When Mrs. Alves received her ShelterBox, she wept with tears of joy: “I’m so happy that my family will be safe.”
