Tawa Rotary Club recently held a Nepal Appeal night and raised $300 for the relief effort following their devastating earthquakes. Together with an additional $1200 from its Charitable Trust, this was enough to fund a Shelter Box to help the Nepalese people.
Tawa Rotary President Martin Garcia is shown with a Shelter Box ready for delivery.
Martin said “The Boxes provide emergency shelter for families, together with essential supplies such as blankets, tools, water purification kits etc. The ShelterBox organisation also provides medical staff with emergency shelter where patients can be treated in privacy.”
“Rotary International’s involvement with Shelter Box delivery means that life-saving support can be delivered speedily to those that really need it.”
Martin said “We know that we have helped make a real difference to the devastated people of Nepal”
