A ShelterBox response team is being mobilised to travel to Vanuatu after the South Pacific country was hit by Cyclone Pam recently. The strength was a category five storm, with winds reaching almost 200 miles per hour.

Vanuatu, one of the world’s poorest nations, is made up of a sprawling cluster of more than 80 islands. The country, sits on the Pacific Ring of Fire and suffers from frequent earthquakes, tsunamis and active volcanoes as well as severe storms and rising sea levels.

While there is a communications blackout in most of Vanuatu, reports suggest that more than a quarter of a million people could now be homeless as a result of the cyclone and that up to 90% of structures have been destroyed or damaged. Thousands of people are now sheltering in evacuation centres in the provinces of Efate, Torba and Penama. 

ShelterBox has agreed to work with fellow aid organisation CARE International to distribute 1,000 shelter kits to people affected by the cyclone. The kits, which are designed to Red Cross specifications, can be used to repair and waterproof damaged buildings as well as to make emergency shelters.
