Wherever possible Newcross Healthcare tries to make a positive difference to the lives of those less fortunate then ourselves.  We strive to create a culture of caring and as such we have committed to donate £5,000 to help the victims of the worst flooding in more than 80 years in Pakistan.  The money has gone to ShelterBox who have already distributed over 1000 ShelterBoxes to families rescued from the floods in the Punjab and Khyber Pukhtunkhwa (KPK) regions last week.

Families whose homes were destroyed in the floods have now found emergency shelter beneath the canvas of ShelterBox tents.  Each ShelterBox disaster relief tent can house an extend family of up to ten people. The tents undergo rigorous testing in wind and rain tunnels and can withstand extremes of high and low temperatures.

ShelterBox's partners in Pakistan, the NRSP (National Rural Support Programme), delivered the aid to families who have been rescued from Pakistan's worst floods in living memory.
