Dear all,

For the record, Ecoshelter is a charity coalition. It is a Trading Name of Tsunami Relief registered with The UK Charity Commission, as is the phrase The Ecoshelter Appeal.

Ecoshelter’s other charity partners include Rotary International, Architects For Aid, Global Promise and The International Aid Trust. Other humanitarian aid agencies will be awarded grants, project funding and direct assistance from Ecoshelter.

Ecoshelter CIC (Community Interest Company) will raise social and philanthropic investment to develop a range of sustainable living solutions, and would examine all proposals on their relative merits.

Ecoshelter and Ecoshelter CIC will seek to support projects that meet the basic "shelter-with-dignity" qualities and standards set by the Shelter Centre, the United Nations and other relevant authorities while promoting an extra sustainability factor.

Ecoshelter supports people and organisations pursuing post disaster shelter solutions as an open source initiative. It will not, however, tolerate misleading leverage off its identity.

The phone number referred to above is that of the registered office of Ecoshelter and Tsunami Relief and was given for anyone who needed further information or clarity to call.
