The major earthquake which struck Sichuan province in China on May 12, 2008 caused fatalities exceeding 80,000 with an estimated 5 million homeless or displaced.  ShelterBox initially responded by sending 800 tents but dramatically increased this number once the scale of the disaster became clear.  ShelterBoxes were deployed in both the Sichuan and Gansu provinces.
