After days and nights out in the open, some families affected by the Super Typhoon Haiyan on the remote Bantayan Island of the Philippines can now call ShelterBox tents ‘home’. 

The most vulnerable families on Bantayan Island are starting to move into ShelterBox tents thanks to the generosity and support of ShelterBox donors across the globe. Thanks to your donations the first batch of tents cleared from Cebu City airport were transported yesterday and distributed immediately upon arrival. More tents are due to arrive today and tomorrow as aid is transported away from the airport.

In this short video ShelterBox Response Team member Simon Clarke (UK) recounts the moment the first families on the island moved into ShelterBox tents and how Simon’s thoughts couldn’t help but turn to the generosity of donors to help families in need especially this close to Christmas.
