rotary water-survival boxes contribute to flood relief in chad, mali and senegal

Distribution of the consignment of 400 boxes sent to Chad has been undertaken by the national Red Cross for the benefit of families displaced by flash floods. In the past two weeks we learned that similar floods have affected both Mali and Senegal in West Africa and we are in the process of finalising arrangements to send a total of 600 boxes to be distributed by Rotary Clubs in the vicinity of the two capital cities (Bamako, Mali; and Dakar, Senegal).
