Following a fantastic fund-raising effort by Rotary District 1940 in Germany, as well as generous support from our supporters across the world, Aquabox has been able to send a further consignment of water filters to Ukraine.
This latest consignment includes 36 Aqua 12s (a total of 432 family filters), plus 20 community filters.
The shipment will be transported by our logistics partner, John Midgely, to the Rotary WASH (Water Sanitation and Hygiene) hub in Lviv. From the hub, half of the shipment will be onward shipped to Mykolaiv in southern Ukraine to provide safe water to communities impacted by the collapse of the dam earlier this year.
The remaining part of the consignment will be distributed across the country by the WASH team in Lviv, to those families and communities who have the greatest need.
In total, this consignment of filters will be able to meet the water needs of almost 15,000 people – and our sincere thanks go to everyone who has supported our continuing response to the situation in Ukraine.
