1st Wootton Bassett Scout Group through various fundraising events raised enough money in March 2014 to provide a ShelterBox for a family somewhere around the world.
The box we donated has been deployed to Madagascar on the 3 February 2015 to aid those affected by flooding.
What’s in the Box?
Each ShelterBox contains essential survival items, such as a tent, stove, tools, blankets, mosquito nets, cooking equipment, water purification and warm hats and gloves. The box also includes school equipment for children. The exact contents of each ShelterBox varies for each disaster they are deployed in. The ShelterBox itself too has use as a water container or as a cot for a baby. Each box costs £590 to manufacture and deliver it to the family in need.
