Did you know ShelterBox responds often in countries that have few, if any, Rotarians, or clubs? Sudan, for example, is a country of 41 million people. However, there's only one Rotary club - with less than two dozen Rotarians.
In Syria, where ShelterBox has been responding to families displaced by conflict since 2012, there is no Rotary. For these families, Rotary may just be a name on a box of aid. But that aid is also impacting and improving living conditions for thousands who received our winterized aid package, which included warm coats for children.

Here are brief operations updates on three of our current disaster responses around the world. For a complete list of where we are responding, click here.

Honduras: Hurricanes Eta and Iota

Teams are finalizing plans for distribution of Shelterkits and household items. Remote trainings sessions are in place, to cascade the approach and share training and resources with implanting partners Habitat for Humanity Honduras and the Rotary Club of San Pedro Sula.

Sudan: Flooding

ShelterBox is partnering with the United Peace Organization in a joint response to the Sudan floods. UPO is a Sudanese non-government organization that focuses on providing emergency relief to victims of disasters in Sudan.

Syria: Conflict

Winterization was completed in Idliba city in northwestern Syria, reaching 1,597 households across 12 camps. The effort provided shelter and other items, including soap, wash basins, and winter clothing for children and vulnerable adults.
