In an effort to raise the standard of living and to support global communities that have been torn by devastating weather events, ShelterBox Canada attempts to boost awareness and funds with a disaster relief fundraiser.
The campaign is kickstarted by the Toronto-based charity in response to Cyclone Idai — a weather event that disrupted Southern Africa and displaced over 128,000 people by inflicting severe damages to their homes and communities. The initative urges Canadians to chime in and help support those in need. A GoFundMe disaster relief fundraiser is launched in the hopes of raising funds for emergency shelters and supplies for the families that are suffering the consequences of Cyclone Idai. The money will go toward purchasing family-sized tents, ShelterKits, 1,000 liters of clean drinking water and solar lights.
