News & Announcements


The following was taken from a September Email release sent out by ShelterBox.
In March 2011, civil uprising against President, Bashar al-Assad began the Syrian civil war which was has now displaced more than 12.2 million people. Four years later, this is the worst humanitarian crisis the world has faced since the end of the cold war.  
This disaster has displaced more people than the Philippines Typhoon Haiyan, Haiti earthquake, Japanese earthquake and Hurricane Katrina COMBINED. ShelterBox has provided emergency shelter and supplies to families fleeing the crisis within Syria and during their harrowing journeys to safety since 2012.

ShelterBox began sending aid four years ago, since supporting over 5,000 families in Syria, Iraqi Kurdistan, Lebanon and Jordan who have been displaced since the conflict started. ShelterBoxes, Shelter kits, tents, mosquito nets, water filters, water carriers, blankets, groundsheets, SchoolBoxes and solar lamps have all been sent to assist families in the region.
Currently, ShelterBox is working in Greece to provide the basic human right of shelter to these refugees as they seek asylum and safety. Teams are working on Lesbos and the surrounding Greek islands (pictured below) to distribute tents and supplies as well as to establish a new camp site to ease pressure on the existing reception camps. The teams put up large family tents in Pikpa, a small camp run by local Greek volunteers, which is housing families with young children, the sick, and the disabled. The final tent, erected two days ago, immediately became home to a young Syrian couple with a four week-old baby who had just been discharged from the hospital.
ShelterBox is among the top charities responding to this conflict according to Reuters and CNN. ShelterBox remains committed to helping the refugees and has a dedicated fundraising campaign due to the enormity and complexity of the crisis.

"'I am proud of our work on the Greek islands, and we will seek to help such families wherever we can, and wherever we are invited by host governments and colleague agencies to improve conditions and to ease suffering."  ~ ShelterBox International CEO, Alison Wallace
ShelterBox USA (
This disaster relief charity specializes in emergency tented shelter and other life-saving equipment. It currently has teams on the ground on the Greek island of Lesbos and has sent aid to support more than 5,000 families in Syria, Iraqi Kurdistan, Lebanon and Jordan.
The Rotary Club of Cedar Park has again subscribed to a full ShelterBox package, and did so in recognition of our District Governor Melinda Osburn who will be visiting the club in October.

Rotary's Areas of Focus

For more than 100 years, Rotarians have joined together from all continents, cultures, and industries to take action in our communities and around the world.  With a commitment to achieving lasting change, Rotarians work together to empower youth, enhance health, promote peace, and most importantly, advance the community.  While Rotarians can serve in countless ways, Rotary has focused it efforts in six areas, which reflect some of the most critical and widespread humanitarian needs:

  • Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
  • Disease prevention and treatment
  • Water and sanitation
  • Maternal and child health
  • Basic education and literacy
  • Economic and community development
To learn more about Rotary and its work in these six area, browse this website and/or visit the Rotary International website.

Under One Sky lights the way to a better world
Rotary and ONE, an international advocacy organization, joined other event partners in downtown Chicago on 24 September to demonstrate a commitment to ending extreme poverty and inequality and to promoting action on climate change on the eve of the United Nations launch of its Sustainable Development Goals. The 17 ambitious goals constitute a road map for finding solutions to the world’s most pressing problems, and dovetail with Rotary members’ work to create positive change in their communities and around the world.

Nigeria declared polio-free, removed from endemic list
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced on 25 September that Nigeria is now polio-free and has been officially removed from the list of countries where polio is endemic. It’s been 14 months since any cases of polio caused by the wild virus have been detected there. With Nigeria’s historic achievement, polio remains endemic in only two countries: Afghanistan and Pakistan. That means transmission of the virus has never been stopped there. Nigeria was the last country in Africa where polio was endemic. The continent celebrated its own first full year without the disease on 11 August. Once...

The event, which drew 23,000...
What peace means to me
People and nations worldwide will observe the International Day of Peace on 21 September, the date designated by the United Nations in 2001 “to be observed as a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence.” That commitment to peace is directly linked to goals pursued by Rotary members since The Rotary Foundation’s mission to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace was proclaimed in 1917. To fulfill that mission, Rotary conducts global forums, hosts international peace symposiums, continues its decades-long collaboration with the UN, and promotes initiatives such as the Rotarian Action...
