Shelter Box and Aqua box

Shelter Box is a club project, owned and run by RC Helston Lizard.

Each ShelterBox contains a 10-person tent, thermal blankets, insulated groundsheets, waterproof clothing, a multi-fuel stove, cooking and eating utensils, water containers and purification equipment, basic tools (spades, axes, rope, etc.), and drawing books with crayons and pens for children. Everything is designed to last for at least 6 months of heavy use by 10 destitute human beings, and may last for much longer.

Since beginning work in 2001, emergency aid from ShelterBox has helped over 500,000 disaster victims worldwide.

Preserving life under some of the most inhospitable conditions imaginable. The cost? Around 25p per person, per day.
