Almancil International Rotary Club (AIRC) donated €750 to the Shelter Box Portugal charity on February 2, enough money to buy one complete Shelter Box.
Shelter Box was started by a Rotarian in the UK in 2000 and has since become the largest Rotary project in the 100-year history of the club.
Each box contains enough essential items to support 10 people and includes a tent, blankets, cooking equipment and tools, with each box being adjusted to the geographical location it is being sent to.
Shelter Boxes are sent to areas that need emergency supplies and can be tracked by donors from the start of its journey to its final destination.
