International

Rotary carries out service projects across the world, from our own community to the most deprived and remotes areas.


 

Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. Clubs from across the world work together to:

  • Promote peace
  • Fight disease
  • Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
  • Save mothers and children
  • Support education
  • Grow local economies
  • Protect the environment

Over the years our club has undertaken many international projects. Shelterbox is an example of the type of project we support.  The idea of Shelterbox is provide one pre-packed, self contained, easily transported unit that provides shelter, warmth and sleeping facilities for 10 people. Created as a Rotary Millennium project in the year 2000 Shelter Box has become an independent Charity. It is able to respond to natural and man-made disasters worldwide, it has also diversified with the aim of providing shelter over the next four years for one million displaced women and children in Africa who have been rendered homeless as a result of war.

A fully equipped Shelter Box costs £490.00 and contains 185ltr capacity rigid plastic container, one new 10 person tent, ten new sleeping bags and useful ancillary equipment including water-purifying material, water carrying bags, cooking pots, rope, tools etc. The cost of dispatching, delivering and distributing the Shelter Box is included in the £490.00 cost.
