Despite tremendous logistical problems caused by the scale of the disaster, storm damage and the nature of the terrain, more boxes are also making their way from Dhaka by road.

Assessments of several locations have been carried out by members of a ShelterBox Response Team and the distribution of boxes to individual families is due to begin tomorrow.
