Summary

Description
English: A Boeing 777, capacity 100 tonnes, has flown from Dubai to Cebu carrying 8,000 shelter kits. The shelter kits consist of plastic sheeting, rope and rope tensioners, and each one will keep a family of five sheltered from the elements.

The flight landed at roughly 6.30pm UK time. The shelter kits will now be delivered to World Vision for distribution in the worst-affected areas of the Philippines.

This is the first of several UK-funded humanitarian flights scheduled to fly from both Dubai and the UK in the coming days as part of the UK’s response to Typhoon Haiyan. The total UK response to the typhoon stands at up to £15m, following today’s announcement that the Government will match-fund up to £5m of the DEC appeal. The UK has also deployed HMS Daring to support aid efforts.
