ShelterBox sent 334 boxes to the Philippines in the wake of Typhoon Morakot. The typhoon left a trail of destruction across south-east Asia in mid-August 2009.
ShelterBox provided emergency shelter for more than 2,000 people who lost their homes when a 1km section of the Bucao Dike collapsed under massive floodwaters. Philippine president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo visited the affected area and met the ShelterBox Response Team.
