How did it all start?
  • In late 1999, Tom realised no one was really dealing with this specific challenge and came up with the idea of the Shelter Box. He spent the next few months researching the idea, sourcing equipment and getting others to back the project.
  • Shelter Box was launched in April 2000 and the first boxes sent to India in January 2001. Now, Shelter Box has become one of the most effective aid agencies in the world.

  • In January 2001, the first 143 Shelter Boxes were flown to the earthquake-hit region of Gujarat in India. Over the next four years, the project grew steadily and the charity responded to 23 different disasters around the world.
  • Then, on 26th December 2004, came news of the Boxing Day Tsunami and everything changed. An unprecedented flood of donations meant the small team that had developed at the charity – together with its many loyal volunteers – was able to respond on a scale not previously envisaged. 
  • During 2005, Shelter Box also helped 13,000 victims of Hurricane Katrina and provided aid for approaching 140,000 people after a huge earthquake in Pakistan
