Tom Henderson and ShelterBoxes

Tom Henderson and ShelterBoxes

At the United Nations on November 7, 2009, RadioRotary co-hosts Sarah O’Connell and Jonah Triebwasser interviewed Exchange Students from the Hudson Valley and representatives from young adult Rotary clubs — Interact and Rotaract – from around the world. Rotarians attended from as far away as Pakistan,. In a special interview with Tom Henderson (Cornwall Rotary Club), founder and creator of ShelterBox, Mr. Henderson explained how his team provides emergency shelter and life saving equipment for up to 10 people per box. Tom Henderson has since been appointed an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) for his outstanding contribution to charity and humanitarian work since he founded ShelterBox in 2000. U.N. Day is intended to provide insight into the strong relationship between Rotary and the UN.
