ShelterBox  Canada Ambassadors Rick Offord & Rob Munden
Guest speakers at our Rotary meeting were ShelterBox Canada Ambassadors Rick Offord and Rob Munden, also Rotarians of the Thornbury-Clarksburg Rotary club.  ShelterBox Canada and Rotary International are project partners in disaster relief.  ShelterBox Canada is a registered charity, part of the global ShelterBox network that provides emergency disaster relief around the world.  They work closely with local organizations, international aid agencies and Rotary Clubs worldwide. Rotary’s International partnership enables Rotarians to connect their own community directly with disaster-affected communities around the world. We were please to provide a donation to support the work of ShelterBox Canada.  See more details here

The aid we supply comes in the form of ShelterBoxes and ShelterKits. Our sturdy green ShelterBoxes contain family-sized tents specially designed to withstand the elements and provide people with temporary shelter until they are able to start the process of rebuilding a home. Our ShelterKits contain all of the essential tools people need to start repairing and rebuilding homes straight away.
That’s not all. We know that a home is much more than bricks and mortar or tarpaulin and tent pegs. Our kits and boxes contain the items that help transform shelter into a home, like cooking sets, solar lights and activity sets for children.”
