About this Project
Disaster Aid Canada provides worldwide aid to people displaced by a disaster. Depending upon the requirements we may fundraise and donate the money to a partner organization on the ground or provide immediate relief with the Disaster Relief Kit. The kit may include a 4 room tent, a tool kit, Hygiene Kits, warmth & comfort products and a water filtration system that will provide a family of 10, a years worth of drinkable water. What we send depends on the need of the affected community. We do not send anything that is not needed or if we do not have a partner on the ground who can oversea the distribution and setup. In most cases the partner will be a Rotary Club in the affected area.
Over the years West Shore Rotary, along with individual members, have purchased a number of Shelter and Disaster Aid Boxes for use in regions of the world when major natural disasters take place.
