Shelterbox – what is it?

Started by a Rotary club, Shelterbox is now a charitable organisation in its own right delivering immediate relief to disaster areas around the world.

The box contains the essentials families need to begin rebuilding their lives after disaster.  Rotary clubs around the country react quickly to disasters around the world by buying a Shelterbox which is then sent to the area in need.   Items inside the box include a tent, a stove and a variety of tools and materials to help families survive in difficult circumstances.  Pembroke Rotary has its own Shelterbox which was on display at the Pembroke Show.   Visitors could go inside the tent and see for themselves the comprehensive list of items that get sent out.
