Addressing the need for clean water
Clean drinking water, sanitation and good hygiene are essential to our health, yet millions of people around the world do not have access to these basic services.
These statistics are alarming
Whenever a disaster strikes, whether it is natural or man-made, there is always an urgent need to provide safe drinking water to those affected. Water supplies are often severely affected in the aftermath of a disaster. Water pipes may be destroyed or the water supply will be contaminated with water from sewage and drains.
In these circumstances people have no choice but to collect water from available local sources, such as streams, rivers and wells. Such water is often contaminated and unsafe to drink. Water-borne diseases such as diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio will spread rapidly and will affect particularly the more vulnerable young and older members of a community.
Aquabox meets the challenge of providing clean safe drinking water in times of crisis by sending our Family filter and Community filter to those most affected. A Family filter can deliver up to half a million litres of clean drinking water and a Community filter over 1 million litres of clean drinking water over its working life.
Please help us to continue our work and help those in need. You can donate securely online, send a cheque, or make regular payments through your bank.
