In the UK we take clean water for granted, but the world's glass is only half full. Over 800 million people across the world do not have access to safe drinking water. See how Aquabox helps those in need in times of disaster by sending water filters, which help to prevent water-borne diseases, as well as other humanitarian aid items.
Earlier this year Aquabox celebrated 30 years of supplying safe drinking water to over 50 countries in the world and has moved to a larger depot where filter manufacturing can be increased to meet the demand.
Recently boxes have been sent to Haiti, Philippines, Nepal, Pakistan, Yemen, Beirut and the Ukraine.
Following the invasion of Ukraine, family and community filters have been sent to the areas around the Ukraine where refugee camps are being set up and Aquabox is committed to supporting these areas for the foreseeable future.
In addition, 250 Aquabox Golds are being shipped in the next couple of weeks to Nepal and the 7th shipment of 250 Aquabox Golds to the Yemen will be leaving in September.
Each consignment of 250 Aquabox Golds is valued at nearly £40,000 so the continued support of Rotary is of paramount importance.
Aquabox have 2 Ambassadors in the Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire area and they are always willing to visit Clubs to update them on the work they are doing to serve the worldwide communities. Gordon McGlone will be pleased to hear of any Clubs who require more information and can be reached as follows:
