A Cornish charity has sent disaster relief supplies to victims of flooding in the Mexican state of Tabasco.
Each ShelterBox tent can accommodate 10 people
An initial consignment of 200 boxes containing tents, sleeping bags, blankets and other emergency aid left the UK on Monday.
Floods in Tabasco are estimated to have left one million people homeless and thousands stranded on roofs.
Representatives of the Helston-based charity ShelterBox were travelling to the country to distribute equipment.
They will work with state officials and Rotary International clubs to assess the situation and evaluate where aid is needed most.
The disaster relief equipment also includes cooking stoves and utensils, a tool kit, plastic bags and water purification tablets.
Each box is designed to help a family of 10 survive for at least six months.
The ShelterBox Trust was founded by the Helston-Lizard Rotary International in June 2000 and is now sponsored by Rotary clubs from six countries.
ShelterBox founder and chief executive Tom Henderson said: "The Mexican authorities are still rescuing thousands of people trapped by the floods and getting medical aid to those in need.
"But while this first phase of the response to the disaster continues, we've been preparing for the next stage, which is providing emergency shelter for those who have lost their homes."
They plan to send more aid depending on available funds and support from the public.
