Our friends at World Air Group are currently helping a charity based in the UK called Shelterbox. ShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that delivers emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to people affected by disaster worldwide. They instantly respond to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict by delivering boxes of aid. Each box supplies an extended family of up to ten people with a tent and lifesaving equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless. The contents are tailored depending on the nature and location of the disaster, with great care taken sourcing every item to ensure it is robust enough to be of lasting value.
The cost of a box is £490.00 which includes delivery direct to those who need it. Each box also bears its own unique number so as a donor you can track your box all the way to its recipient country via the website. Highly trained ShelterBox Response Teams distribute these boxes on the ground, working closely with local organisations, international aid agencies and Rotary clubs worldwide.
Since its inception in 2000, ShelterBox has firmly established itself at the forefront of international disaster relief, providing emergency shelter for the people who need it most on every continent.
World Air Group has been working very closely with them on the Haiti and Chile disasters, arranging charter flights from various locations to get aid where it is needed.
Christopher J Bliszko, the Commercial Aircraft Director of World Air Group knows that Michael fans are renowned for their humanitarian efforts, and wondered if any of you would be interested in helping. He has set up a special page which anyone can use to make a donation.
