Through Rotary Switzerland a new charity has been launched to support the work of the Water Survival Box Charity which is currently based in the United Kingdom. I had the privilege of being invited to be one of the founding members of the charity.
It was a beautiful sunny evening last Thursday in Luzern when Rotary founded the Swiss Water Survival Box. It was somewhat ironic, considering the suffering of the victims of the hurricane in the Caribbean.
Thanks to the hard work of their members they have raised enough money to send 220 boxes to Hurricane victims in the Caribbean. Already plans are being made to dispatch 500 boxes which will be flown into the island of St Croix and then distributed to Tortola, St Martins, St Barth, Turks and Caicos and Anguilla. These boxes can’t come soon enough as access to clean drinking water and shelter is very limited or nonexistent. It is with the help of the Rotary and the donations from the public that we can help these people. Please check out the Water Survival Box Charity and see how you can help by making a donation.
Lets face it none of us are immune to natural disasters.
