ShelterBox

2 Nov

I first come to know about ShelterBox was back in 2008, when someone invited me to join the fan page of ShelterBox @ Facebook. Liked the page without much understanding about the cause (just knew it is one of the Rotary Project).

The first real encounter with ShelterBox happened back in June 2009 when i was visiting the House of Friendship exhibition hall in Birmingham England during the Rotary RI Convention. The ShelterBox team has a big boot displaying the actual box and all the aids keep with in the box. The projects they had accomplished and life they had helped & saved for all these years.

I got really touches and promised myself that if there is a cause i must support within this lifetime – it got to be ShelterBox

So what is ShelterBox?

ShelterBox is an international disaster relief aid that send to either natural or man-made disaster around the world. A box is send with full equip of emergency aids for the victim whom has lost their homeland.

Each box supplies an extended family with a tent and lifesaving equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless. The contents are tailored depending on the nature and location of the disaster, with great care taken sourcing every item to ensure it is robust enough to be of lasting value.

Each box bears its own unique number so as a donor you can track your box all the way to its recipient country via the website

Highly trained ShelterBox Response Teams distribute boxes on the ground, working closely with local organisations, international aid agencies and Rotary clubs worldwide.

Since its inception in 2000, ShelterBox has firmly established itself at the forefront of international disaster relief, providing emergency shelter for the people who need it most on every continent.

I would urge whoever is reading this please do also extend your helping hand to the people has lost the homeland due to any disasters. You could contribute a donation via www.Shelterbox.org and tell as many people as you could about this wonderful cause.

Thank you
