Two years after that devastating earthquake, Cornish aid workers warn we still need 'Help for Haiti'.

230 thousand lost their lives and many more were left homeless.

Helston charity Shelterbox set up almost 30 thousand emergency tents.

Now teams are back on the ground.

Operations coordinator Tom Lay says there is still work to be done: "On one level I saw a significant increase in the life of a city, that trade, that busy population. But at the same time, an awful lot of open spaces still had emergency shelters on there; there's still half a million people living in temporary accomodation".

Tom was one of the first responders when the tremors struck in 2010 and has been back in the last few months.

Hear his full story.
