Cyclone Harold made landfall on April 6th 2020; decimating homes, gardens and anything else that stood in its path as it tore across Vanuatu.
Earlier in the evening Shelley had reinforced the roofing of her kitchen to save her home. That effort had paid off. But as Shelley and her community huddled shoulder to shoulder in her kitchen, the cyclone raged on. A flying piece of tin roofing smashed a hole in one of the walls. Every adult who was not holding a child or heavily pregnant was holding on to the house.
Shelley and her family are one of 2,000 households that received ShelterBox aid in the wake of Cyclone Harold. Tarpaulins could afford Shelley’s family a dry night’s sleep; whilst a spade, shovel and nails meant that she could rebuild her house, and later return to subsistence farming.
