Flooding and volcanic activity

224 ShelterBoxes have been sent to Egypt where flash floods have destroyed hundreds of homes. Torrential rains in the Aswan and Qena regions as well as the Sinai Peninsula have washed away mud brick houses forcing scores of families out of their homes.

ShelterBox Response Team members Lizzy Treglown (UK) and Adrian Sumner (UK) are working with local Rotarians, the Egyptian government and local Scouts to distriubte boxes to the worst affected areas.

The team report that many villages have been completely destroyed by flooding and families were still living among rubble when they arrived.
