Philippines Disaster: Children Get Help From Cornwall

Children in the Philippines who lost everything in the typhoon are being kitted out with new clothes from Cornwall.

A Helston company has sent out a container load with Redruth charity Shelter for Humanity.

It is hoped the shorts and t-shirts will help families who are slowly rebuilding their homes and lives.

Kurt Jewson runs Frugi: "It's nice to feel that us that have so much can help, in a small way, those that have lost everything and also with the logistical and the practical help of an organisation such as Shelter for Humanity."

Redruth charity Shelter for Humanity has launched its 'Raise the Roof' campaign to help victims of the disaster and Pirate FM will be travelling out to The Philippines with aid teams to see exactly how money is helping families re-build their lives.
