Larry Palant, ShelterboxApril 8, 2016 7:30 am - 8:30 am
Larry Palant is a member of the Suffern Rotary Club and is also a Rotary Ambassador for Shelterbox. He will be here to share more about how Shelterbox works, and answer any questions we may have.
From the Shelterbox website (www.shelterboxusa.org):
The top priority of many aid organizations is to provide food, water and medical care to help people survive the immediate aftermath of a disaster. Without protection from the elements, survivors are at a higher risk as they await nourishment or medical attention. We recognized that little or no assistance was given in terms of proper shelter to help them through the first few days, weeks and months as they tried to rebuild their lives. Today, ShelterBox assists disaster survivors during the critical period following a disaster but preceding reconstruction.
To help them begin to rebuild their lives and communities, we deliver shelter and lifesaving supplies to the most vulnerable people.
