I hope you have all read the emails that Barry forwarded to you.
It sounds as if the special emergency Shelter box that we purchased has been sent on its way to Samoa. Clearly they need tents, and many of the essentials of life. The boxes go some way towards these needs as well as popping in a few children’s games for the kids.
It was great to hear Air NZ gladly transported the boxes at no cost. In times like this having a stock of ready prepared boxes is the answer. Rotary is in a special position world wide to respond to urgent needs.
If any member would like to make a personal contribution towards the appeal here is the contact details. The cost of one ShelterBox is $NZ1500.00 ShelterBox New Zealand
