ShelterBox and Rotary - A Unique Global Partnership


Mitone Griffiths is a fellow Rotarian and Ambassador for ShelterBox.

The global support from the Rotary International network is the cornerstone upon which ShelterBox is built.  In April 2000, the Rotary Club of Helston-Lizard in Cornwall, England adopted ShelterBox as its millennium project. Little did they know that it would become the largest Club project in the world, responding to disasters and conflict across the globe and providing emergency shelter to over one million people.  Since ShelterBox was founded in 2012, they have grown from one club’s adopted project to Rotary International’s only Project Partner in disaster relief. Their global network has been key in our international growth.

At present, all ShelterBox affiliates have been set up by Rotarians or Rotaractors and the growth has been phenomenal. This agreement enables both organizations to collaborate more closely to bring relief and temporary shelter to survivors of disasters worldwide. The project partnership has built on both organization’s strengths in responding to disasters all over the world.

Helping our communities in time of crisis

"When the COVID-19 crisis hit our area, I immediately suspended our campaign for Congress and repurposed our team to help our neighbors. For me, it was a very easy decision. In my talk, I will discuss the tasks that our grassroots team took on, including reaching out to every senior in our district, to help our communities get through this pandemic." --Rishi Kumar
