Cornish Charity Highlighted in Somalia Debate

I was delighted to be able to recognise the vital work that the locally based charity Shelterbox in the debate on Somalia on Thursday 9 February.
Shelterbox provide emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters, at the time when they need it the most.

Their goal is to help 50,000 families every year and in the 11 years since ShelterBox was founded, they have responded to almost 200 natural or manmade disasters in over 75 different countries, providing lifesaving aid for well over one million people.
