The Beneficiaries of the Proceeds of Opera in the Arboretum 2016

In 2016 the major beneficiaries from Opera in the Arboretum will be Shelterbox Australia and PCYC Umina Beach.

Shelterbox logo

Shelterbox Australia have, since they began in 2000, responded to earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, tsunamis, hurricanes, landslides, typhoons and conflict, delivering emergency humanitarian aid to communities in need on almost every continent.

Every year, hundreds and thousands of communities, often with npo warning, lose their homes, their possessions and their livelihoods - every day, they are faced with a battle for survival.

Often ShelterBox is the first outside aid agency on the ground distributing desperately needed shelter and emergency aid to people whose lives have been destroyed.

What's in a Shelterbox?

Each box supplies an extended family with a tent and essential equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless.
