Our Club has been awarded a ShelterBox Bronze Champion for 2018-2019.  Out of over 1100 clubs in Australia we are among an elite group that are dedicated to ensuring families in disaster have shelter in their time of need.
ShelterBox is proud to be Rotary International’s Project Partner in disaster relief, further strengthening a global circle of friendship.  This year ShelterBox has once again announced the winners of the ShelterBox Champion Awards.  This is a national awards program to formally acknowledge the amazing support that Rotary provides in supporting families that are left without shelter.
Natural and other disasters are inevitable and frequent, and the need is continuous. More than 35,000 people were forced to flee their homes every day in 2018 - nearly one every two seconds - taking the world's displaced population to a record 88 million.  With global Rotary support, ShelterBox provided shelter and life-saving items for 42,000 families robbed of their homes by disaster and conflict. That is 210,000 people helped on the road to rebuilding and recovery. 

ShelterBox Champions are made up of an elite group of Rotary clubs that have identified the continuing need to prepare for and immediately respond to the worst day ever. ShelterBox Champions make a lasting impact in worldwide disaster response by supporting ShelterBox annually for three consecutive years.
