Fleet Residents support Shelterbox Indonesian Tsunami Appeal
Update: Fleet Rotary and our local community recognised by Shelterbox for their support over the past 12 months
Fleet residents have raised £1200 for the Shelterbox Indonesian Tsunami Appeal following a street collection on Saturday 13th October 2018, arranged by Fleet Rotary. Further donations from Club Members and Fleet Rotary have increased this to a total of £1805.
Right now, a ShelterBox response team is on the ground in Indonesia working to help survivors of the earthquake and tsunami.
The challenges are huge. The whole island of Sulawesi is devastated, roads are blocked, and communications are down. But Shelterbox highly-trained response team are determined and committed to finding a way to help families who've lost everything in the wake of this devastating disaster.
They are working with the Indonesian Government and Rotary, who are helping them in their mission to help the vulnerable families who will not receive help otherwise.
They have essential items ready to go, like tents, ShelterKits made up of tarpaulins and tool kits, as well as water filters and blankets.
We must do all we can to give families living out in the open a way to create a space to sleep and to eat, to feel safe and protected, and to start rebuilding their lives.
