Tents4Peace origins

"The name Tents4Peace International grew out of the concept of supplying emergency shelter in the form of good quality, long-lasting tents for those left homeless as the result of war or natural disaster throughout the world.

The wish for "Peace" to prevail over such tragedies became the cornerstone of our endeavours."
