We’ve all been hearing on the news about the devastating floods that have hit Pakistan in recent days.
And this is where Rotary comes into its own.
Through its partnership with ShelterBox (who provide boxes similar to those shown in the picture which can provide temporary shelter and support for up to 10 people) aid can be provided extremely quickly to areas that desperately need it. ShelterBox works with Rotary clubs local to the area where the help is needed to deploy these boxes.
And thanks to the support that we have received from the Swanage and Purbeck community through events such as our Christmas activities and the recent Summer Fête, Swanage and Purbeck Rotary CIO (the fundraising arm of Swanage and Purbeck Rotary) have been able to fund three ShelterBoxes for urgent deployment to the devastated area.
Thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts, for enabling us to be able to demonstrate Rotary In Action.
