WELCOME TO TAUNTON VALE
ROTARY IN ACTION
Rotarians from the Clubs of Taunton and Taunton Vale collected on Friday and Saturday to help ShelterBox provide for the homeless of Vanuatu in the South Pacific who experienced the world's worst Cyclone last week. Thanks to the generous people of Taunton, £1200 ( to buy two ShelterBoxes), will be forwarded to ShelterBox
When the Tsunami hit Japan, we watched it unfold on TV. Vanuatu is an archipelago of small islands at the other end of the planet, so the world wasn't watching when Cyclone Pam destroyed most of the houses and left the people desperate. Proportionately the devastation and the need are greater yet it's already disappeared from the news.
ShelterBox and Rotary are partners - global support from the Rotary network is the cornerstone that ShelterBox is built on. This link will tell you what ShelterBox are already doing for the people of Vanuatu. Emergency shelter and supplies are already on the way from pre-positioned stocks in Penang, and co-ordinators from Australia and New Zealand have gone to the islands.
