ShelterBox - Madagascar - Cyclone - 2012
ShelterBox is sending emergency shelter to Madagascar for families who have been made homeless by Cyclone Giovanna that struck on 14 February.
A category four cyclone hit the eastern shores of Madagascar in the early hours of the morning, bringing sustained strong winds of around 231 kilometres per hour and torrential rains.
A ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) has been working closely with the National Bureau of Risk and Disaster Management (BNGRC), the national disaster relief agency, to carry out a needs assessment in the most devastated areas of the island.
