Donation to Disaster Aid Australia

 

Our club has donated $1,600 to Disaster Aid Australia for the supply of two Family Survival Kits.

Disaster Aid Australia continues to assist those refugees in the Horn of Africa especially the most at risk at a new camp site in Kambioos.

Ed Cox, Disaster Aid International head of Training and Deployment reports that the Family Survival boxes are the highest quality tents available within the region.

 “The new Kambioos camp site is 16 square kilometers – another mammoth site with refugees waiting to be allocated their new home”, Ed reports. The magnitude and complexity of creating these camps is enormous as everything from shelter, water systems, sanitation, food, security, medical and everything else 500,000 people need to survive must be built in this barren land.
With tents being erected, NFI (non-food items) being handed out and more container loads on the way, Disaster Aid Australia and its international partners continue to respond to the world’s most desperate in true Rotarian spirit.
With your continued support we as Australian Rotarians and friends of Disaster Aid Australia will continue to turn despair into hope, around the world."
