The two boxes will cost  about £1,200  and contain the following. Large family tent, mosquito nets, cooking implements, water purification equipment, blankets, groundsheets, mattresses, lighting, tools, tarpaulins,  ground sheets and other useful aids.

The plight and suffering of the people in these areas is heartbreaking with tens of thousands having lost family members and  everything they owned.

The boxes are sent on behalf of Darwen Rotary and the people of the  town  and follows our tradition of sending such help across the world at times of natural disasters
