Many people tend to think of ShelterBox as an organization specializing in getting emergency aid to victims of earthquakes, floods, and the like. In reality, is shows up wherever people are in any kind of need because of things beyond their control.

To document that, four British photographers traveled with volunteers from Shelterbox to meet families the organization is helping live through drought in Somaliland and hurricane devastation in the British Virgin Islands, as well as to persecuted Rohingya Muslim families living in refugee camps in Bangladesh after fleeing their native Myanmar.

BBC.com created a gallery of photos excerpted from their work. Click here to view it.
