Following the great generosity of local people including Hemyock Market, Hemyock Baptist Church, St Mary’s Church Hemyock, the Men’s group and St Mary’s Church, Upottery, The Evergreens of Culmstock and many individuals who gave to street collection in Tiverton, the Rotary Club of Tiverton has been able to send to ShelterBox enough funds for 13 boxes (@ £490 each) a total of £6370.
Already ShelterBox has sent 3,000 boxes to Haiti; the first boxes provided for a field hospital on the airfield in Port au Prince and now tented villages are being set up in 6 different locations.
In due course, I will let you know the numbers of the Boxes so that you can track them on the website www.shelterbox.org. All the latest news on the work of the Response Teams can be found on that website.
Many, many thanks!
