Ebola

I give below a brief description of Warwick Rotary Club's plans: -

There have been cultural links between Warwickshire and Bo for the last four years, including teacher exchanges, and school project support from Leamington and Warwick Rotarians, led by a Leamington based charity which promotes educational and vocational links.  The link between Warwick and Bo is therefore established.

Workaid

Supporting Workaid by collecting Sewing and Knitting machines to help disadvantaged people(mainly in East Africa) with the tools they need to acquire skills and become self-supporting.

Tools for Self Reliance

Collecting basic hand tools and gardening implements to send to impoverished parts of the World where people can not only help themselves but set up small businesses to support their families and local communities.

Shelter Boxes

Supporting the Shelterbox  Scheme which provides tents sleeping bags,cooking utensils, water purification tablets and basic hand tools to people who have ‘lost everything’ in parts of the World where disaster has struck, helping them to help themselves get back on their feet..
