TRotary ShelterBoxhe Club's reach goes beyond Newcastle. Routinely we support people and communities across the world through donations at times when people need it most. For example we donate money to purchase Aquaboxes and Shelterboxes which are packed with essential shelter items but when unpacked provide a water filtration system to help people survive following man-made and natural disasters.



Our biggest international project (so far!) supports environmental health students/graduates from Northumbria University to go out with the charity Water for Kids to undertake public projects around water supply, sanitation and hygiene in Uganda. Learn more about the work in the links on the right. 

To keep up our involvement in Uganda, we held a fundraising event on 10th April. We now have enough money raised to send five or six students to Uganda in 2016!
