ShelterBox has been working with local groups to help people create safe shelters and rebuild their homes following Hurricane Odile.
In September, Hurricane Odile, described as the most intense tropical cyclone to hit in 60 years, made landfall on the Baja California Peninsula on the west coast of Mexico.
As the hurricane was not expected to hit land, little warning was given and it inflicted widespread damage. In the state of Baja California Sur, the popular tourist area Cabo San Lucas suffered winds of 125 miles per hour.
Nearly 700,000 people affected with a desperate need for emergency shelter, food and water. This is the scene coming out of the West African country Benin.
A two-person response team from international disaster relief charity, ShelterBox, is set to leave the UK for Benin today. Highly-trained ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) members James Webb (UK) and Chris Donald (UK) will be working to establish the areas of greatest need in the country.
