INTERNATIONAL & FOUNDATION
This committee considers applications and ideas to support projects overseas, mainly in developing countries, supporting disaster relief, agriculture, education and medicine.
A regular activity is the provision of Shelter Boxes. The Shelter Box is an emergency box that provides a tent and sleeping bags for a family of 10 people. Buying these boxes (at ~£600 each) is one focus of activity for this committee. As a result of the work by this committee other organisations have also become involved in Shelter Boxes. This has included Rotary in North America.
We would like
to thank the many people who have supported the
Shelter Box project. As a result of this support we
have provided over £20,000 to the Shelter Box Fund
to help those affected by the Tsunami.
