Before the NZ lockdown, members spent a morning helping to pack Emergency Response Kits.

Emergency Response Kits are one of Rotary’s best success stories.  Since 2007, over 5588 Kits have been distributed to those in dire need in 12 disaster areas in the Pacific caused by cyclones, floods or tsunamis.
The Emergency Response Kit is a ‘first response’ resource distributed to affected families immediately following catastrophic weather and environmental events in Polynesia and Melanesia to support them through the first days after a disaster. With a kit and a little ingenuity, a family can construct basic shelter, keep themselves protected from the elements and utilise the immediate survival items that are included.
