A Cornish charity is sending vital aid to Grenada, one of the Caribbean Islands hit by Hurricane Ivan.
Tom Henderson shows what a Shelterbox contains
The Shelterbox Trust is sending 100 emergency boxes to the island where 37 people died and hundreds left homeless.
Each box contains a 10-man tent, sleeping bags, water purification tablets, containers, cooking sets, torch, rope and basic survival items.
Haiti has also been badly hit and US Shelterbox members are due to visit other islands in the Caribbean.
The Shelterbox Trust was established by the Helston Lizard Rotary Club four years ago.
The scheme, which provides disaster relief for stricken communities around the world, has attracted international support and now has members in Australia, Canada, Japan and the United States.
The charity says the concept is a very simple one - to provide shelter and accommodation to an extended family of 10 people, together with ancillary equipment which all fits into one container.
Tom Henderson from the charity said: "Apart from the tent and sleeping bags there is also a water purification system, enough for 10 people for six months.
"So on a daily basis they can produce their own clean water."
Shelterbox has recently sent boxes to the Sudan and victims of the Iran earthquake.
