Projects - Home in a Box

What Price would you pay for Shelter, Warmth, and Dignity???

The idea for “Home in a Box” came from a much bigger organization called “Shelter-boxes”. ShelterBoxes have provided thousands of Shelter, restoring Dignity to countless people around the world after natural disasters.

We have taken a page from their book and created a smaller version. Our “Home in a Box” provides all the essentials for a family of 7 to survive during the most vulnerable time.
