Fakenham's Rotarians have joined the international effort to provide shelter for homeless earthquake victims in Haiti.

The disaster which struck the Caribbean country left hundreds of thousands of people in squalid improvised camps without basic supplies of water, shelter and sanitation.

So Fakenham's Rotary Club has joined other branches across the UK to raise money for a specialised equipment to be sent directly to the worst-affected areas.

The club has donated money for a £490 shelter box which includes a 10-person tent, 10 sleeping bags, water purification equipment, water carriers, cooking pots, and tools, as well as play items for children.

The box itself is a multi-purpose 185ltr rigid container which can be reused as furniture or storage for food or water.

A branch spokesman said the club would continue to raise funds to help the humanitarian effort.
