Victims of flooding in Nepal, India and Bangladesh are to be helped by a Cornish aid charity.
Each ShelterBox tent can accommodate 10 people
ShelterBox, which is based near Helston, is coming to the aid of some of the 20 million people who have been made homeless in the floods.
In Nepal, 24,000 families have had their homes swept away after the most severe monsoon rains in years.
An initial consignment of 200 boxes is about to be sent with more aid expected to follow next week.
The ShelterBox Trust was founded by the Helston-Lizard Rotary International in June 2000.
Its boxes contain tents, sleeping bags, blankets and other emergency aid.
The disaster relief equipment also includes cooking stoves and utensils, a tool kit, plastic bags and water purification tablets.
