Enthusiasm Growing:

It's truly amazing what has happened to Disaster Aid Canada since our December announcement of our new Canadian operation whereby we have again expanded and opened our own warehouse in Victoria BC.

Your enthusiastic response to our "Canadian" operation and the fact that we will endeavor to purchase "Canadian" goods to fulfill our provisions we send to others, has allowed us to provide five full deployments of aid already in 2012. More than all of last year combined.

We are also working on four more deployment of goods and with your continued financial assistance, we will help more people in more ways than ever before.

Please read below to see where we are going, who we are helping and what a difference we make (sometimes between life and death) to the lives of others who we will never meet and never know.

Regards - Don Ohlgren

Latest News from Disaster Aid Canada

Could you imagine what it would be like to lose everything, watch your children suffer through lack of food and water and not be able to give your family the security of basic shelter? These are the questions we ask every day. How can we assist these people around the world to have security as a family unit and a glimmer of hope for their future?

We are constantly moved by the generosity and commitment of fellow Rotarians, their friends and associates here and around the world who support Disaster Aid Canada's humanitarian aid delivery - delivered by Rotarians to those most in need with accountability and dignity.

Disaster Aid Canada, together with our international Rotary partners continues to assist refugees in the Horn of Africa, especially the most at risk at a newly created camp.

At the time of writing, another two containers of Family Survival boxes are being delivered to house the frail and most at risk. The magnitude and complexity of this disaster is enormous with shelter, water, sanitation and food being the priorities.

With the support of fellow Rotarians, we will continue to assist and turn despair into hope.

We need your continued support ...

In our first twelve months of serving those most in need, deploying to Pakistan, the Sudan, Haiti and the Horn of Africa, and with a commitment to assist Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar, Belkys Lopez in the Sudan again, we need your help in replenishing our stocks. For a family that has lost everything, $750 buys the security of a home ... and an opportunity to rebuild their lives.

Quite simply, the more Family Survival boxes we have in stock, the more families we assist in the Rotary spirit.

And please remember, Disaster Aid Canada really is the essence of Rotary service. As a project of the Rotary Club of Royal Oak (D5020) its members (and their families and friends) continue to provide a selfless, ongoing commitment - in so many ways - to this real 'Rotary Club' humanitarian project.

We welcome your contact to discuss how as Rotarians, we can help put smiles back onto so many faces through the delivery of our 'boxes of hope'.
