ShelterBox is a charitable organization that offers proper shelter and other essential items to disaster stricken areas. Each ShelterBox shelter kit comes with a rugged dome tent modeled after a typical African bush hut, which comes with built-in mosquito screens, integral groundsheets, good ventilation, and internal privacy screens; thermal blankets are also included in the kit. A wood-burning or multi-fuel stove, pans, utensils, mugs, water storage containers, and water purification equipment are a part of the kit, as is a basic tool kit with items such as a hammer, ax, saw, hoe head, rope, pliers, and wire cutters. Finally, ShelterBox also provides children’s packs containing drawing books, crayons, and pens.

    They don’t specify the manufacturers of the contents of their kits. All I can say is the tent is supposedly designed by ShelterBox themselves.

    I was the account manager for a vendor to Shelterbox a while back. Great organisation. They source the tents from some of the largest retail tent-makers in the marketplace. I forget the name, but there is one primary european manufacturer, and then a number of secondaries, depending on volume required, that they use. The tents are designed by Shelterbox, based on experience gathered from previous distributions.
