Water Survival Box aid is being sent
Water Survival Box make final preparations to send 360 WSB’s of aid to Haiti. On the 14th of August a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck the Tiburon Peninsula in the Caribbean nation of Haiti, approximately 150 kilometres west of the capital, Port-au-Prince. 136,800 buildings have been damaged or destroyed. 2,248 dead and 13,000 injured or missing.
Type of disaster: EARTHQUAKE
Our greatest challenge providing aid to Haiti has been finding a way to transport aid at an acceptable price. With airfreight prices for the transportation of 360 boxes, being prohibitively high, air transport was ruled out. Our boxes will now leave the UK in mid October by sea-freight and will take approximately 22 days to arrive in country. It will then through our in-country partners “World Vision” (who have managed to negotiate a duty free waiver for humanitarian aid) distribute our boxes to those in need.
Please return to this page for regular updates as we follow the aid as it journeys towards Haiti and those in desperate need.
|Each box contains an Aquafilter pump and health and hygiene items, stainless steel kitchen set, basic shelter, simple tools, and other necessary household items. The Aquafilter pump supplied in each box when attached to the box provided can then be filled with dirty water. When manually pumped through the pumps filter it is able to deliver 10 litres of safe drinking water per person each day and will provide for a family of five for up to five years|

Your aid has been instrumental in providing 10 liters of safe drinking water per person each day and will provide for a family of five for up to five years.
