The following is an extract from a letter sent by ShelterBox to Rotary clubs around the country to thank them for their support during recent appeals:
I'd like to say a huge thank you for all of your support for our earthquake appeal. We have simply been bowled over by the fantastic response by Rotary members across the country to the devastating earthquakes affecting Türkiye and Syria. Help from Rotary has not only been through the amazing fundraising efforts for our appeal, but also in our work on the ground.
In Türkiye, our Rotary contacts have been instrumental from the very beginning, providing critical introductions to local authorities, valuable translation services at training sessions, help arranging travel and logistics across the country and so much more. We are now working directly with Rotary members in the distribution of tents, blankets, mattresses, stoves, and lighting to communities.
With best wishes,
ShelterBox Rotary Team
