Shelter Box-Haiti

Nearly 100 tonnes of additional aid is being flown to Haiti this week
as thousands of people who lost their homes in the devastating earthquake
are being given the chance to start rebuilding their lives in ShelterBox tents.
Emergency shelter for more than 20,000 people is now in Port au Prince
and surrounding areas with small camps already set up in Delmas,
Petion-Ville, Carrefour and Leogane.
Hundreds more ShelterBoxes containing disaster relief tents
and other life-saving supplies are being sent to the city
in the next few days from Miami, Curucao and France,
meaning another 11,000 people will be given emergency shelter
.On Friday, ShelterBox is chartering a 747 aircraft with 1,800 boxes
to fly from Stansted Airport to the Dominican Republic
where they will be taken overland to neighbouring Haiti.
It is the second flight chartered by the international disaster relief charity
for the Haiti response after a plane loaded with 700 ShelterBoxes
and 100 tents flew out of Newquay Cornwall Airport last week.
ShelterBox Response Team members Jane Nash (UK)
and Gary McCafferty (UK) travelled overland from Santa Domingo
with an aid convoy to ensure the ShelterBoxes
reached Port au Prince at the weekend
.John Leach, Head of Operations for ShelterBox, said:
‘The need in Haiti is massive
. Our team in Port au Prince is working with Dutch marines
to ensure the safe and effective delivery of disaster relief tents
and hundreds of these are already being used in four different locations.
‘Distribution of aid by our highly-trained ShelterBox Response Team members
is underway but the need for emergency shelter is still desperate
.’A number of ShelterBoxes have also been used at an orphanage
and at two hospitals in Port au Prince where tents
are being erected to help save lives.
Speaking from Bernard Mews Hospital in Freres, a suburb of Port au Prince,
ShelterBox Response Team member Wayne Robinson (US) said
: ‘Right outside the hospital there have been hundreds of people
who have been laying in the sidewalks, on the streets
and in blankets right on the ground in unbelievable conditions.
They are bleeding, they have missing limbs
and there are even women giving birth.
‘We felt this was a good use of the initial boxes that we had here on the ground
and we’ll be bringing more here and using them as a transitional poin
t to get people out of the elements while they are
waiting for treatment at the hospital.
Buildings have crashed down all around us here
and people are just waiting and waiting to get in here for medical services

Rotary Club of Booragoon
Our member, Di Roberts, has funded and built a school for the
very poor children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopa.
She has just returned from her bi-annual trip.
She was thrilled to see the new school, the little children attending
and also purchased equipment that was needed for music rooms,
sports needs and nursery needs.
What the school desperately needs now is a bus,
as some children are walking for an hour and a half to get to school.
Funds are available to fuel and maintain the bus,
but money is desperately needed to make the purchase.
With that in mind.
the RC Booragoon (which has already donated AUD$1000)
is holding a fundraising night on 23rd February at the South of Perth Yacht Club.
It will be in Archie's Bar and will be a barbecue. [6 for 6.30pm]
We would love to have other Rotarians attend
this night if they feel inclined and Di and her grand daughters Jana and Georgie
will be speaking about the project.
Please direct any queries to me.
Yours in Rotary

Good Evening Phil,
Just a bit of news for you.
Mel (my Husband) and I together with David Pankhurst
(President of South Perth- Burswood Rotary Club),
Aley (David's partner), Jamie (Aley's son) and Margaret (Friend of David's
and Aley's) cooked for the families at
Ronald McDonald house on Christmas Day.
Mel is a chef by trade and he took charge of the kitchen.
David, an avid cook, made the soup and between us all
we catered for around 50 (including the helpers and weekend Managers)
. It was a long day, commencing at 8.00am
and we finished at around 5.00pm.
Some of the preparation, including the shopping,
Mel and I did the day before as did David
and the rest was done on the day.
All the food and drink for the day was donated and it included:
Soup, Roast Pork, Roast turkey, Ham, vegetables, salad,
Cheesecake, plum pudding, jelly, mini pavlovas, wine, beer and soft drink.
This was the second year that we did it and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Kind regards,
Mel & Lesley Johnson
