Just as the distribution of the last of 4,000 kits to Aleppo families had finished, the offices of ShelterBox distribution partner ReliefAid were wrecked by an air strike in Syria. >Cornwall based charity ShelterBox has provided 4,000 aid packages to families in Aleppo via in-country partners, New Zealand-based ReliefAid.

The kits they provide to families are a mix of life-saving essentials including water purification equipment, jerry cans, mats, solar lamps, tarpaulins, mosquito nets and kitchen sets.

The team have been distributing shelter kits in Aleppo for ShelterBox over the last six months – a total of 4,000 kits able to support over 24,000 people.
