ShelterBox awarded Rotary International with its first Global Humanitarian Service Award, in recognition of Rotary’s outstanding partnership throughout the years during its 20th anniversary virtual event in November 2020.

“The partnership between Rotary and ShelterBox has provided a place of refuge to people facing some of the most difficult and uncertain moments in their lives.”

– John Hewko, General Secretary of Rotary International
Rotary has been instrumental in ShelterBox’s growth, helping to transform ShelterBox into an internationally recognised disaster relief charity. ShelterBox and Rotary officially became project partners in disaster relief in 2012.
ShelterBox provides emergency shelter and essential supplies to help communities through their toughest times. The two organizations have helped over 1.6 million people in 100 countries. More recently, the partnership has delivered lifesaving shelter and aid to families, protecting them from the threat of coronavirus.
