Over the last couple of years the Murrumbidgee Rotary Club have been feverishly cooking sausages and lamb burgers to raise funds to purchase a shelterbox!
What’s a Shelterbox I hear you ask?
Shelterbox is a Rotary initiative designed to be delivered rapidly to areas affected by natural disaster and conflict during times of need.
The shelterbox contains cooking equipment, basic tools, water containers and filtering equipment, a large durable family sized tent, mosquito nets, thermal blankets and much much more. Shelter boxes have been delivered all around the world to support victims of Earthquakes in New Zealand, Tsunamis in Thailand, Cyclones in the Pacific Islands, Floods in Pakistan, Fires in Australia and most recently war torn parts of Iraq and Syria.
Every Shelterbox purchased is given a unique number and can be tracked around the world from it’s centralised storage locations around the world to the location it’s deployed. For more information or to track our Shelterbox, click here Murrumbidgee Rotary Club Shelterbox delivered to Iraq Kurdistan.
