Aqua & Shelterbox Sent to Disaster Zones
Purchase of 2x Aquaboxes & an Additional Shelterboxthumbnail view
After seeing the disturbing scenes from the West Indies, Mexico and Southern America following category 5 Hurricanes Harvey & Irma the club knew that we needed to come up to the mark and offer support.
It is difficult being thousands of miles away to feel useful, however, the purchase of almost £1000.00's worth of emergency aid kit in the form of 2 Aquabox's and a Shelterbox means that those who can deliver the aid right to the heart of where it is needed have more of the equipment needed.
These boxes save lives by giving shelter, clean water, heat, and the ability for family units to stay together until the infrastructure is rebuilt.
Over the years the Rotary Club of Carlisle South, along with many other Rotary clubs have provided tens of thousands of such aid boxes to those in need right at the time and place where they need it.
