We’re sure that everyone has been shocked at the enormous impact of the earthquake in Morocco and the devastating floods in Libya, where the number of deaths is multiplying almost by the hour.
Swanage & Purbeck Rotary CIO is well aware of the requirement to act quickly in situations like this, as was the case previously for the Türkiye / Syria disaster, and made a decision this week to fund up to five ShelterBoxes (such as the one pictured above) from its own funds (some of which were raised at the recent Summer Fête).
You can see more of the work that ShelterBox are already doing in the affected areas here and on their YouTube channel here.
If you would like to contribute to this initiative, please scan the QR code below where you can donate directly to our fundraising effort.
The Shelterbox charity, originally founded by a Rotary club in Cornwall, is always one of the first organisations to get to disaster zones when they happen around the word, and the boxes can literally be lifesavers in the first few days following an event such as an earthquake or flood.
Please give whatever you can to help.
