Thousands of communities around the world lose their homes, possessions and livelihood from natural disasters and humanitarian community crises each year. Without the support from others, these communities would be unable to rebuild themselves and continue to survive. In an effort to provide support for these communities, Trust Realty Group has partnered with ShelterBox Canada.
ShelterBox is a cutting-edge charity that hand-delivers emergency shelter for families devastated by natural disaster and conflict. Their signature ShelterBoxes and ShelterKits contain the tools to transform lives and rebuild communities. ShelterBox is fueled by an impatience to reach more people, to empower them to transform their lives, and to build a world where no family is left without shelter.
A few examples of the crises they have helped include:
- The 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami
- The 2010 Haiti earthquake
- The Syria crisis
- The biggest storm to ever make landfall: Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
- Hurricane Matthew in 2016
- ShelterBox is currently reaching out to support those who are being affected by landslides in Colombia, Flooding in Peru, Cyclone Dineo in Mozambique, and drought and famine in Somaliland.
How We Help
Each month, with every transaction made, Trust Realty Group will provide proceeds towards ShelterBox aid.
ShelterBox aid includes ShelterBoxes, ShelterKits, SchoolBoxes, as well as general aid items like solar lights and children’s activity packs. ShelterBox Response Team members provide ShelterBox aid to communities so they have the essential tools to start repairing and rebuilding homes straight away. The aid is customized depending on where it is going and what the families need. They also provide people with temporary shelter until they are able to start the process of rebuilding a home. The cost of a full ShelterBox is $1200, the SchoolBox is $1200, and the ShelterKit is $100 or $250 with lumber and roofing sheets. These costs include the cost of shopping the aid and having a ShelterBox Response Team deliver it and train the communities.
