Overview: The team received a request for aid for people affected by flooding in the northern areas of DPRK. As the country experiences very harsh winters, the operations team has decided to send Flex 3 tents, which can accommodate stoves and winterisation kits.
400 sets of Flex 3 tents, stoves, winterisation kits, and 400 small ShelterBoxes containing non-food items were sent to the DPRK.

Thursday 19 April
400 Flex 3 tents, stoves, winterisation kits and boxes with household supplies have been transported to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to help families whose homes have been destroyed or damaged by a succession of severe storms and a harsh winter.
The Flex 3 tent is a quilted, three layer tent designed so that a stove can be safely places and used inside. The winterisation kits include partition walls that help keep heat in, along with insulated sleeping mats that can be stuffed with materials such as straw to create warm mattresses. The boxes, which are a smaller version of ShelterBox’s iconic green boxes contain a selection of items to help people return to everyday routines, such as cooking sets and water containers, as well as thermal lined blankets for extra warmth.
