Our guest speaker at the last dinner meeting was our own Sally Fletcher who made a presentation about ShelterBox. Sally is one of 150 members of the international ShelterBox Response Team. She joined ShelterBox in 2011 and has joined international teams to help provide relief aid in Fiji, Vanuatu and the Philippines.

ShelterBox started as a Rotary project in Helston Cornwall UK.  It is supported by volunteers, paid staff and a global network of affiliates and partners including Rotary International.  Seventy percent of the funding to run the organization comes from Rotary. The ShelterBox Vision Statement is “No one without shelter after disaster”. The task is huge, globally, the need for emergency shelter is growing every day. To 2021, over 100 million people were forced from their homes by disaster and conflict. 

A great presentation of a wonderful humanitarian organization which the club is proud to continue supporting.
