Rotary Club De La Manche Donate Two Shelterboxes to the Indonesian Tsunami Appeal

Acting through the local Shelterbox Volunteer Representative for the Channel Islands, Katrina Rondel, two more Shelterboxes are now en route to Indonesia, donated by Rotary Club De La Manche.

The Shelterboxes, which cost £590 each, contain a range of selected items – as shown in the picture /consisting of tent, blankets, groundsheet, mosquito net,  stove, water purification and cooking  equipment, tool kit and child activity pack  – to support a family in time of need. The robust green container can, once emptied, be used for storage.

Shelterbox UK has close links with Rotary through the Helston - Lizard Rotary Club who adopted the concept as a Millenium Project. Shelterbox has a co-ordinator on the ground close to the main disaster site and therefore distribution is controlled to meet the needs of the families most affected. Some 90% of Shelterboxes delivered to disaster areas are with the assistance of local Rotarians.

Ricky Leith, President of Rotary Club De La Manche said ‘Acting swiftly on a suggestion by Senior Vice President Angela Francey, Council agreed the proposal and the Club confirmed this within days – appreciating the need to support the urgent and steady flow of Shelterboxes to Indonesia. Our thoughts are with those that have suffered and also those addressing the needs of the survivors. A total of four with the two donated by the Rotary Club of Jersey.’
