Day 1706 - Shelter Box

What would you need to survive if your home was destroyed?



You would probably need some shelter, food, blankets, clothes, tools, water and basic first aid supplies. If your entire community was destroyed, how would you get these basic needs? Yesterday I came across "Shelter Box" and international disaster relief charity specialising in delivery of emergency boxes of aid to provide shelter, warmth and dignity to families who have lost their homes to disasters, both natural and man-made.  Rotary Australia is involved in the project which has worked more than 200 disasters in over 90 countries.  I had not heard of it before but it peaked my interest enough to donate some money and get more information on the charity.  For more information head to their website at www.shelterbox.org.au.
