A response team from the Cornish charity Shelterbox has arrived in Kenya.

10.7 million people are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance across the Horn of Africa region following a severe drought.

A Shelterbox response team is already operating in Ethiopia and, with an estimated 1,500 people a day arriving at refugee camps, the need for quality, emergency shelter is growing by the day, according to the group that works with Rotary Club members worldwide.

The Shelterbox charity receives much support from Scilly with last weekend’s Mundesley House Fete, a charity 10k run by Gaz O’Neil and the Wine Club all raising cash for the lifesaving tents packed with emergency supplies recently
