Shelter kit preparation

The experience of handling the relief and rehab operation to Tsunami affected taught us to create a Shelter kit which compromises all the items a family of four would need at the time of dislocation from

The homes due to calamities. The items were carefully selected and included tarpaulins, utensils and jars, clothing for gents, ladies and children, cooking necessities, water purifiers, lanterns, mosquito nets etc. Several fellow rotary clubs and organizations, consulates and other NGO’s have since joined hands

With the club for creation of several thousand shelter kits which have been sent to the several calamities that have happened over the years in different parts of India starting from Kashmir, Bihar, Sikkim, Darjeeling, Sunderbans etc. The pictures have each to tell….
