New Cornish Disaster Relief Charity
2:43pm 24th April 2013
The former Chief Executive of Shelterbox has set up a new disaster relief charity in Cornwall.
Tom Henderson was sacked from the Helston organisation last year.
Now he has launced Shelter for Humanity, which will also help families in crisis around the world.
He insists there is enough room for both of them: "Alot of people talk about rivalry and whatever, I see it as complimenting what other people do. The truth is there's enough work for a thousand organisations like Shelter For Humanity. You only need to look at The Red Cross, Unicef, that cannot conceivably do all the work that's in front of them in a disaster.
"It's shelter to settlement. In other words, take these survivors, put them in tents and all these other great organisations that are doing work. But work with the community leaders, work on the infrastructure, water, sanitation, medical staff, emergency power. It's to take disaster relief to the next level."
