What's Happening?

ImageThe devastating 7.8 earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday morning has resulted in a death toll that is approaching 4000 people and growing. Many people are afraid to return to their homes out of fear of strong aftershocks, leaving them exposed to the elements. Many more homes were reduced to rubble.
There are immediate needs for shelter, blankets, water, food and other essentials. 

Many people in your clubs and communities want to know how to help. ShelterBox which provides needed essentials to disaster survivors – shelter, tools, water purification systems, blankets, mosquito netting, solar lights and more – is already in Nepal to help people get back on their feet.

If your club wants to help, please contact Greg Krauska, ShelterBox Ambassador at 612-801-7821 or gkrauska@hotmail.com.  If friends and family would like to help, direct them to www.shelterboxusa.org.  Ask them to mention your Rotary club to give you credit towards your ShelterBox Hero recognition!
