A ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) from New Zealand immediately headed to the islands of Somoa after a devastating tsunami struck the country.

The tsunmai was triggered by a deep-sea earthquake on September 29 and caused widespread destruction in Samoa and American Samoa. Twenty villages were completely destroyed and an estimated 3,500 people were displaced.

80 ShelterBoxes were sent from pre-posistioned stock in Melbourne, Australia and delivered to Samoa with the help of the New Zealand authorities.
