The Rotary Youth Speaks Competition is well established and successful within our District 1060 and within RIBI.
The RIBI International Committee has spoken to all the 4 Disaster Box schemes and can report that Shelter Box already have a team on the ground in the Philippines and are utilising boxes in the country with more being shipped. Aquabox, Disaster Aid UK and Ireland, and Water Survival Box have all received requests for help.
For immediate response please support these four box schemes.
In addition donations to the “RIBI Donation Trust” can be sent to Alcester and this money will be allocated by the Trustees to suitable projects that will bring help to those affected by the storm.
Please remember that some of our box schemes are also working hard to support the Syrian refugees and therefore their funding is under considerable pressure.
