Calverley Rotary supports Turkish and Syrian earthquake survivors


Calverley Rotary Club members have been doing their bit to support the survivors of the earthquake disaster in Turkey and Syria.

Members have bought purchased five Aqua Boxes and five family filters at a cost of £925 from their charity account.

Each Aquabox Gold Box, which is tailored to support a family group, contains water purification filters as well as items of humanitarian aid to help with shelter and shelter building, lighting, cooking and feeding, educational development and hygiene. Each box with all its contents costs us £150, plus £35 for the Family Filter device

John Procter, secretary of Calverley Rotary Club, said: “Natural or man-made disasters happen all too often and when they do people are in desperate need of safe drinking water and humanitarian help.

“We rely entirely on donations and the fundraising activities of our supporters to fund our work and to purchase the items which we supply in the aid boxes we send out in times of crisis.

“We are always looking for new members to join us on a Tuesday evening for a meal and get together plus a range of speakers. Please contact us if you are interested.”
