AQUABOXES

July 28th  2013

Over a 12 month period the Mission Project aimed to raise money to provide Aquaboxes for areas of the world where disasters strike and people are left homeless. Their first need is for fresh drinking water. The Aquaboxes are  robust plastic tanks with water purification filters and are packed with essential welfare items for a disaster situation. Once the contents have been removed, each Aquabox can be used to purify up to 1100 litres of polluted water, making it safe and pleasant to drink. As an example, 110o litres is equal to 5,000 cups – that is enough for a family of six people (each drinking 10 cups per day) for about four months. We shall endeavour to raise sufficient money to buy ten of these boxes which will be filled with humanitarian goods which will assist people in different parts of the world who have experienced natural disasters. In addition the boxes  contain a pump and filter which makes polluted water drinkable.

We Did It!

Margaret Height, the  Secretary of the Missions and Outreach Committee, handed over a cheque of £1,000 to Mr Mike Tomlinson the Chair of the Aquabox Trustees.
