ShelterBox Coordinates Efforts With Rotary in Russia

ShelterBox has been working closely with a local Rotary club in Russia’s Krasnodar region to help families made homeless by flash floods that hit overnight in the first week of July. 

Krasnodar Rotary club has helped the ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) with needs assessments, transport, box logistics, translation and aid distribution.

‘We have had great support from local Rotarians every step of the way from picking us up at the airport; to assisting with customs clearance; to providing volunteers, some from the Universal Peace Corps Federation, who helped set up the tents,’ said Eva Doerr (DE), one of the SRT members.

Rotarian Evgeny Novoselov has shown enormous support for ShelterBox’s work by being a key player in customs clearance and logistics; and Fedor Gladkiy is the Past President of Krasnodar Rotary club who provided accommodation for the Response Team.
