A shelterbox is a piece of first response kit used in many many disasters over the last twenty years or so.
Each Box is equipped with vital emergency equipment, including: a ten man tent, a stove, cooking utensils, blankets, water purification equipment, tools and even a few toys for the very young children.
Shelterbox is one of the major Rotary programmes that Barnard Castle Rotary Club supports as part of its International programme.
