From Rotary International:
Rotary helps disaster victims

The Rotary Foundation and Rotary clubs are helping communities battered by severe weather and earthquakes.

The Rotary Foundation is collecting emergency relief funds to help victims of hurricanes Harvey and Irma while local clubs are working in their communities.

“The power of Rotary is in the Foundation’s ability to pull help from around the world while local clubs provide immediate relief in their own communities,” says Don Mebus of the Rotary Club of Arlington, Texas.

Two powerful earthquakes hit Mexico, destroying buildings and highways, and killing hundreds of people. Rotarians have set up a fund to help reconstruct schools, housing and medical facilities.

Hurricane Maria is wreaking havoc on the Caribbean and is blamed for nine deaths so far.

In Sierra Leone, torrential rains and a mudslide in August has killed more than 500 people and destroyed nearly 2,000 homes. On the outskirts of Freetown, Sierra Leone’s capital, an orphanage, where more than 60 children slept, was swept away in the slide. More than 600 people are still missing.

An estimated 40 million people across Bangladesh, India, and Nepal have been affected after massive floods hit the area last month. UNICEF estimates 31 million people in India have lost their homes, and 8 million people in Bangladesh and 1.7 million in Nepal have been affected.

Rotary’s partner, ShelterBox, is providing support to families displaced by the storms.

ShelterBox teams are working with Rotarians to assess the damage and provide emergency supplies and temporary housing in Bangladesh, Nepal, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone.

In Texas, hundreds of light privacy tents were deployed to evacuation centers for families to use temporarily.
