Families grateful for ShelterBox Solution in Japan

Thu 24/03/2011 14:13    

Earlier today ShelterBox tents were set up for families in desperate need in the tsunami-hit Iwate Prefecture of Japan.
The ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) has been working with the local authorities to bring emergency shelter to families who lost their homes in the tsunami.
Hashimoto-san, a local politician from the Iwate Prefecture who has lent his expertise and local network to help ShelterBox’s efforts in the country, said: ‘It’ll be up to three months before temporary housing can be made available to those displaced by the tsunami. Many individuals who have been forced to choose between crowded displacement centres or dependence on the hospitality of friends and neighbours will prefer the independence and privacy afforded by the ShelterBox solution.
We hope ShelterBox can support us with the quantities required in a timely fashion to make this possible. The displaced were concerned about the long wait ahead before the completion of government temporary housing and are relieved and grateful for the solution ShelterBox has provided.
In this season freezing winds blow across the coastlines and the opportunity to remain near their homes yet avoid discomfort is being gratefully seized by the affected families.’
