Real-life situations captured in poetry to raise funds for response teams
The RAPID-International book of poems has been written based on real-life situations and the thoughts and feelings of the rescuers, survivors and supporters. The book is to raise much-needed funds for RAPID’s voluntary response team, which has vast experience in deploying to disasters around the world.
The book has an inclusion by RAPID’s President, HRH The Duke of Gloucester, and has been reviewed by well-known British author, Jilly Cooper OBE.
RAPID’s goal is to help reduce the damaging effects that disasters and daily emergency situations can have on people’s lives, livelihoods and futures. It does this this by offering experienced training teams that have a well-established and proven track record globally.
