Hope and Strength

10th September 2018 @ 10:00 am - 24th November 2018 @ 4:00 pm


Four leading photographers Olly Burn, Tom Stoddart, Veronique de Viguerie and Dougie Wallace have helped us to pay tribute to the incredible hope and strength of the people we meet. See their images at the Hope and Strength exhibition at ShelterBox Disaster Relief Visitor centre this autumn. 

Olly Burn visited Somaliland to photograph the resilience of the colourful communities ShelterBox is working with.


The photographers travelled with us to meet families living through severe drought in Somaliland, devastation in the British Virgin Islands, and to meet Rohingya families living in the refugee camps in Bangladesh. In circumstances often defined by violence and tragedy, these families show courage, determination and resilience.

The photographs capture the incredible power people possess to carry on and be hopeful. They show families living their lives after disaster and communities working together to help each other, sharing what little they have, rebuilding their lives on a foundation of hope.

You can see these incredible photographs at the Hope and Strength exhibition at the ShelterBox Disaster Relief Visitor Centre in Truro from Monday 10 September to Saturday 24 November 2018. Admission is free.
