Blog readers send 950 ShelterBoxes to help disaster survivors
An obscure blog has kick-started a massive fundraising campaign that resulted in donations of almost £50,000 for international disaster relief charity, ShelterBox.
Today is the 3 month mark, since the fault slipped. Here's today's report from ShelterBox :
ShelterBox has now delivered over 13,000 ShelterBoxes to families who lost everything in the 7.3-magnitude quake, with each box containing a disaster relief tent to house a family of up to 10 and other items essential for survival.
As the world marks the three-month anniversary of the disaster, ShelterBox is preparing to send another 5,000 boxes of aid – enough for a further 50,000 people – with thousands more ShelterBoxes due to arrive in Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, during the coming months.
