Rotary ShelterBoxes for the Philippines

When we see widespread suffering in other countries, we realise how fortunate we are to live in and around Clearwater

When we see widespread suffering in other countries, we realise how fortunate we are to live in and around Clearwater.

In the past, locals have contributed generously to provide Rotary ShelterBoxes for temporary accommodation: Haiti following the devastating earthquake and Japan after the monstrous tsunami. Now people in the Philippines are trying to recover after an unbelievably destructive typhoon.

Clearwater Rotary has, once again, set up an account at Interior Savings Credit Union for donations. All will be matched by the federal government. Consequently, each $1,000 raised here will provide two ShelterBoxes. Drop by the Credit Union – every dollar helps.

 

The ShelterBox kit provides a tent, sleeping bags, cooking equipment, water and more – sufficient for a group of 10. When we see the devastation on TV and hear that 600,000 people are affected, we realise how badly assistance from the international community is needed.
