Shelterbox

Club Project - Shelterbox

Supporting Shelterbox is a long-standing project of the Rotary Club of West Wollongong. Our club has provided district representation since the founding of Shelterbox inAustralia. Shelterbox is indeed a worthy cause in providing world-wide disaster relief, filling a gap in supply of emergency shelter in the event of a disaster anywhere in the world. Shelterbox provides its own resource to deploy this aid, through Shelterbox Response Teams. This is made significantly more efficient, by leveraging support from the world-wide Rotary network. To date over 125000 Shelterboxes have been  deployed during 180+ disasters around the world since founding in 2001. Our club is proud to be a supporter of this worthy project by providing ambassadors to promote the cause, and contributing annually to funding Shelterboxes.
