RESTOCKING - APPEAL FOR FUNDING SUPPORT


During the past year, as we have responded to disasters in the Far East, Indian sub-continent, Africa, and Caribbean, our stock of uncommitted packed Water-Survival Boxes has reduced significantly and it is vital that we now attract the funds needed to restock. Just to add a further 1,000 standard Water-Survival Boxes will cost some 150,000 and we hope Clubs that are in latest-news.htmla position to assist respond now and that all Clubs build in a forward commitment to assist during the new Rotary Year. Whilst Rotarians in Chelwood Bridge continue to provide all the necessary management and practical effort required we are heavily dependent on our Rotary friends across RIBI and overseas to provide the funds to 'make it happen'.
150 pays for the cost of a standard WSB and 350 a multi-pack of five (water purification kits only) both including the cost of air freight to ensure the boxes get to those in need as quickly as possible. Remember that as a pure Rotary charity all the management of the Water-Survival Box project and the practical work involved in getting boxes packed is done by members of our Rotary Club with hands-on help from other volunteers from Rotary, Inner Wheel and our local schools and community groups. We have no paid employees and every pound donated goes directly to pay for the boxes, contents, our fixed costs and air freight.
