The Shelter Box came about when a Cornish Rotarian and ex Royal Marine realised the pressing need for the provision of shelter in disaster areas. Having been in such zones, he saw that food always arrived quickly, but people were often left without any shelter.
These wonderful boxes contain everything necessary for a family to live until they can be restored to their homes. The tent is lightweight, easy to erect and can comfortably house up to 10 people. The stove assembles easily and will burn almost anything. Cooking and eating utensils are of high quality stainless steel. The water purifier is simple to operate. The cost of these Shelter Boxes is a mere $1000 and Haenertsburg Rotary Club is proud to have been able to pay for 2.
