Shelterbox-NZ Shelterbox New Zealand

A New Zealand Rotary objective is to provide a ready stock of Emergency Response Kits containing useful items in standard containers for use as survival kits in emergencies within New Zealand and the South Pacific.

A stock of kits is stored near Auckland Airport, ready to be airlifed to affected areas at short notice. Rotary's aim is to have 600 kits on hand to enable a significant response to cyclones and other disasters. Some kits are also held at strategic locations in the Pacific Islands.
