Shelterbox - Emergency Aid
The Rotary Club of Adelaide West supports the work of Shelterbox, a Rotary aid organisation providing emergency family shelter kits at times of crisis, such as recent Fiji Cyclone; Nepal Earthquake; Japanese Tidal Waves ... just to name a few.
The kits contain a Tent to give shelter to a full family; plus daily essential aids such as cooking equipment; water purifiers + more.
The kits are transported in strong boxes, which in themselves offer displaced families a place to store items to keep them clean and dry.
The Australian Defence Force often transports bulk shipments of Rotary Shelterboxes to countries in dire need.
Shelterbox is another example of the international power of Rotary Clubs working together in the name of humanity.Find out More! Send us an Email!
