Shelter BoXとは、2000年に発足し、これまでにも数多くの災害地にテント、物資、衣料品など必要なものを頑丈なコンテナに詰めて送る活動をしてきた災害地支援団体です。
ShelterBox was founded in year 2000 and have responded to over 230 disasters and humanitarian crises by delivering essentials to people who needed assistance in rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of a disaster. These items are shipped in containers and includes items such as tents for families, thermal blankets and groundsheets, water storage, and purification equipment, solar lamps, cooking utensils, mosquito nets, and children’s activity pack.

Recent supports included 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, 2010 Haiti earthquake, 2013 Typhoon in the Phillippines Typhoon,, and shelterBox has continued to send boxes to those in need.
The box is made of a strong plastic material and weighs 55 kg. Once it has collected 80,000 Japanese yen worth, one box is ready to being donated.
What's in the BOX?
The box with cover is made as a place container, but also as a bed for smaller child and a bath. The box contains a tent that can sleep up to 10 people, thermal blanket, cooking gadgets, and also items for children such as drawing books. The organization is widely supported and popular because of these special support to children, and if a personal person sponsors a box, that box can be tracked where it went through a “box number”.
