Film & Campaign Description


What would you take?

Every day, behind the headlines, people caught up in the war in Ukraine face impossible choices. Stay or go. Fight or flee. Take or leave.

Two Ukrainian artists – poet Serhiy Zhadan and actor Ivantiy Novak – give voice to these experiences, the homes people have left and the memories they carry. With thanks also to Stephen Fry and Enviral for their help making this film.


We’re ShelterBox. A global community that believes shelter is a human right.
We’re united by a shared purpose – no one without shelter after disaster. Because shelter is the foundation for life. A foundation for survival, stability and dignity. Enabling people to take steps towards recovery.
We started over 20 years ago with our iconic green ShelterBoxes. Today, we do much more.
We listen. Hearing what people need, creating innovative and tailored support to meet complex situations.
We support. Giving emergency shelter and aid essentials. Shelter repair kits, water filters or solar lights. Helping people build, repair or return home.
And we share. Using our expertise to support those affected and champion local partnerships and environmental sustainability.
Disaster, conflict and climate change are forcing more people to flee their homes than ever before. We must act now to change this.
Support ShelterBox. Together, we can build foundations for life.
