FEATURE

ShelterBox Australia Deployment Update

November has been a momentous month for ShelterBox. Whilst we were responding to an earthquake in the Philippines, the country was struck by the strongest storm ever recorded. Super Typhoon Haiyan left an estimated 10,000 people dead and hundreds of thousands in desperate need of shelter.

ShelterBox responded immediately, dispatching more SRTs to the area, along with aid, pre-positioned in the Philippines and Dubai, whilst volunteers at HQ packed boxes. An international "Typhoon Haiyan Emergency Appeal" was launched. ShelterBox Australia set a fundraising target of $500,000. In an amazing outpouring of public generosity, in just 3 weeks we broke through this target. With the help of Rotary, individuals, and charitable foundations we have raised over $510,000 .... and the fund is still growing! Obviously, the need is huge and the more donations we receive, the more families we'll able to help. We have since raised the bar to $750,000.

To all those that have donated, a big thank you! Your generosity will have a huge postive impact on families in desperate need. Stay tuned to the ShelterBox Australia website for deployment updates.
