Newcastle Sunrise has made a $500 donation to Shelterbox Australia following a number of devastating natural disasters around the world.
Shelterbox and Rotary are official partners in disaster relief. When a natural disaster occurs, the Shelterbox provides enough supplies for 10 days for a family of four.
Each Shelterbox costs around $1000 and Newcastle Sunrise is delighted to assist Shelterbox Australia with providing more Shelterboxes around the world.
In 2015 the Club purchased a Shelterbox and in 2016 we received news that it had been deployed to aid a family in Africa.
Recently there was a Shelterbox set up at the Living Smart Expo. You can see the story on Rotary District 9670 website here: http://www.rotary9670.org.au/Stories/shelterbox-at-living-smart-expo
As Rotarians, we are proud of our work helping people in our local communities and around the world.
Rotary, Making a Difference.
