The 40 tonnes of aid were flown from Cornwall
Hundreds of boxes of aid from a Cornish charity for earthquake victims in Haiti have been flown out from Newquay Airport on a special charter flight.
The 700 ShelterBoxes are being flown directly to the island's capital of Port-au-Prince.
Loading of the 40 tonnes of aid, with enough shelter for 7,000 people, began after the plane landed in Cornwall.
Meanwhile, tents from ShelterBox in Haiti are being used to shelter hospital patients.
The Airbus landed in Newquay on Wednesday afternoon. It took off at about midnight after being loaded by aircraft staff and ShelterBox volunteers.
ShelterBox tents which arrived in Haiti earlier in the week are being used to provide emergency shelter for post-surgery patients, the charity said.
Charity response team member Mark Pearson said: "The doctors are desperate for all our equipment.
"The hospital has no electricity, no food, no running water. The injured are constantly coming in with untreated injuries."
Each ShelterBox contains a 10-person tent, blankets, water purification and cooking equipment, tools, a stove and other essential survival equipment.
