OPDATERET 3.OKTOBER 2017
 
Rotary E-Club One of Denmark har reageret på en opfordring fra Water Survival Box om økonomisk hjælp til det katastroferamte Caribien efter orkanen Irma. E-klubben har overført 7.500 kr., der svarer til fem kasser med overlevelsesudstyr, bl.a. til vandrensning.
 
En boks kost 1.500 kr. og giver en familie på fire personer rent vand i et helt år. Svarende til 2 liter vand pr. person om dagen.
 
Water Survival Box er en forstærket 54 liter plastkasse, der bruges som vandbeholder, når den er tømt for de medfølgende genstande. Vandet renses hurtigt og enkelt ved hjælp af en håndpumpe med kulfilter, som fjerner smagen af klor, der tilsættes vandet i form af klortabletter.
 
Foruden udstyret til at rense forurenet vand med indeholder kassen bl.a. køkkengrej, værktøj, forbindinger og hygiejneartikler, som dækker de overlevendes behov de første uger efter en katastrofe.
 
Donationen fra Rotary E-Club One of Denmark svarer til over 1.000 kr. pr. medlem.

Emne: Re: Hurricane Irma - Water Survival Box appeal
 
Dear Haagen Peder

Many thanks for your email and your subsequent very generous donation of 7500 Danish kroner which has resulted in £881.79 being received into our account for Water Survival Boxes

We are still finalising arrangements to get a distribution of 500 boxes into the Caribbean but this has been made more complex by the second hurricane, Maria which hit the island's last week. Rotary District 7020 Disaster Recovery Team is assisting us and we hope to have news of progress this week.

Please thank your members for their generosity
Best wishes

Tony Quinn

HURRICANE IRMA APPEAL
The D7020 Hurricane Irma Recovery Committee is committed to helping us get Water Survival Boxes into the following Caribbean islands affected by Hurricane Irma
 
• Tortola/Virgin Gorda BV
• St. Martin/St. Maarten
• St. Barths
• Turks and Caicos
We have 500 boxes ready to be dispatched and are seeking flights from DHL
 
In addition we have already made a commitment to Humanity First for the dispatch of 200 boxes to Bangladesh following the floods recently.
 
This distribution to the Caribbean will diminish our stock significantly and we have planned packing sessions to prepare more boxes as we are in little doubt that many more will be needed.
 
Please support our efforts by making a donation or arranging collections to support the victims of Hurricane Irma
