Shelter Box Cornwall Support for Haiti

ShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that delivers emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to people affected by disaster worldwide. It's headquarters are in Helston, Cornwall, UK, about twenty miles from where I live.

 There are 10 international affiliates.

Emergency shelter provision for more than 30,000 people has now been pledged to the people of Haiti with more due to follow but the logistical nightmare in Haiti continues.

1,700 ShelterBoxes have already been dispatched and a further 1,600 will leave from the UK this week directly for Port au Prince, Haiti. 

Warehouse volunteers in the UK have worked tirelessly packing the boxes. This is a total of 3,300 boxes with more to follow.
