About project shelter
For communities to progress, safety and security is essential. This is why Shell’s Project Shelter is here. It is a continuing effort to readily assist communities amidst natural calamities that our country is prone to experiencing.
Continuously Protecting Our Vulnerable Communities
The Philippines sits on the infamous Ring of Fire, a geographical area prone to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and monsoons. Due to the rains and low-pressure areas, heavy flooding can significantly affect the country, with an average of 20 typhoons hit every year.
Project Shelter is our continuous effort to prepare for such calamities. In the Philippines especially, a country no stranger to natural calamities, we plan properly for times our communities are in need of assistance.
Through our Shell mobility sites nationwide that serves as donation drop-off hubs, Filipinos will have a way to help their countrymen in need of help.
Powering Lives Through Collaboration
Understanding our communities is a vital part of improving life. We work closely with our communities, identifying problems and issues, and what we can do best in the event of a natural calamity. We also engage with local partners. Shell with our social arm, Pilipinas Shell Foundation Inc. collaborate with local government units, NGOs, and companies to keep people safe and gather the resources for it.
The ‘bayanihan’ spirit is innate to Filipinos, an attitude of cooperating and helping each other out, for the greater good of the community. It is a philosophy we embrace, especially when it comes to preparing for natural calamities.
