Following the devastating floods in Pakistan, which have left thousands homeless and vulnerable to disease from contaminated water, Aquabox is sending water filters to provide access to clean drinking water.
We will be sending our first consignment of water filters to Pakistan in the next few days. Our initial consignment will comprise 24 Aqua 12s (288 Family filters) and 20 Community filters, which will have the capability to meet the water needs for 13,000 people.
We want to send further shipments, but we need your help. Each family water filter is assembled by our volunteers so only costs £35 and can provide clean water at a rate of 1 litre per minute, sufficient to support a family of 7 or 8. The Community filter however can provide clean water at a rate of 6 litres per minute and can support over 500 people in a village school or community centre, but these cost £450 each.
As you can see, the first shipment providing clean water for 13,000 people will cost us nearly £20,000.
Please help us to meet these costs if you can, so we can provide further clean water to these desperate people. You can donate either through Just Giving or via the Donate pages on this website. The link to our JustGiving campaign is here:
Thank you for your support.
