Flash floods in India’s Himalayan region of Uttarakhand have killed hundreds of people, left thousands more missing and tens of thousands homeless.

A ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) has been in the area assessing the need for emergency shelter for the past two weeks in the most hard to reach locations, and seeking suitable avenues of bringing ShelterBox aid into the country.

Another SRT is travelling to the affected area to support ShelterBox’s disaster relief efforts in the country due to the enormous scale of the disaster.
