In response to the urgent appeal for help to reach the people in Haiti who are worst affected by Hurricane Matthew, one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes in recent years, the Rotary Club of Rushen & Western Mann in the Isle of Man have funded a Shelterbox to be sent in support of those who have lost their homes.
The Rotary Club of Rushen & Western Mann has been an active supporter of the ShelterBox Charity for many years. ShelterBoxes provide emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it most.
Each large, green ShelterBox typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, groundsheets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, mosquito nets, solar lamps, a basic tool kit and other vital items.
Geoff McCann, President of the Rotary Club of Rushen & Western Mann commented we pride ourselves in our support aid when such major world disasters strike and have the ability to respond instantly assisted by a global network of ShelterBox volunteers.
