ShelterBoxes sent to Kenya after the drought and famine in May and June 2011

ShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that provides temporary shelter and life saving supplies to displaced families.[1] ShelterBox sends a package that typically contains a tent designed to withstand extreme weather conditions. It also has a water purification kit, blankets, tools, and other things needed to help a family survive after a disaster.[1] The contents of a ShelterBox are designed for the nature and location of the disaster.[2]
