Video: Reaching Remote Communities In Malaysia

ShelterBox has been working in Malaysia since late last year to help people who have suffered from some of the worst flooding in more than 40 years.  
 
Response volunteers split into different teams to provide aid to as many affected areas as possible.  One team, made up of Ben Julian (UK) and Torstein Nielsen (NOR) travelled to the eastern state of Pahang where homes, villages and roads were completely destroyed, leaving whole communities homeless and inaccessible.
This video shows the extent of devastation caused by the floodwaters and the team’s journey upriver to deliver aid with the assistance of the Special Malaysia Disaster Assistance and Rescue Team (SMART) to people who had lost everything.
Thanks to all of our supporters worldwide for helping us bring vital shelter to these families in need.
