Helston based ShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that delivers emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to people affected by disaster worldwide.

They instantly respond to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict by delivering boxes of aid.

Each box supplies an extended family of up to 10 people with a tent and lifesaving equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless. The contents are tailored depending on the nature and location of the disaster, with great care taken sourcing every item to ensure it is robust enough to be of lasting value.

The cost of a box is £490, including delivery direct to those who need it. Each box bears its own unique number so as a donor you can track your box all the way to its recipient country via the website.

ShelterBox is sending emergency aid to Port au Prince, Haiti after an 7.0 magnitude earthquake.

The ShelterBox Response Team on the ground have described the situation in Port au Prince as desperate. ShelterBoxes were immediately dispatched and tents and equipment are currently being packed night and day in Helston to meet the ongoing need.
