Rotary Club of Brisbane Mid-City supplies urgently needed Shelter Boxes to Fiji’s cyclone victims

The Rotary Club of Brisbane Mid-City has responded promptly to the Fijian cyclone disaster with the immediate supply of six Shelter Boxes.

Announcing the donation today, the President of Brisbane Mid-City Michael Sargent said:

“The Shelter boxes will deliver some of the essentials that our Fijian neighbours need to begin rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of Cyclone Winston.

“As well as a tent, each Shelter Box will contain items tailored to the local needs, including groundsheets, water storage and purification equipment, solar lamps, cooking utensils, a basic tool kit and mosquito nets.

“There will also be a children’s pack containing drawing books, crayons and pens.  We know from experience that children who have lost most if not all their possessions, these small gifts are treasured.

“As Rotarians in central Brisbane, we cannot overcome the tragic loss of life in Fiji, but we can provide material and urgent help to those suffering from the cyclone’s devastation.

“Rotary is well organised internationally to assist by supplying the Shelter Boxes which cost $1000 each.”
