Water Survival Box aid is being sent to:  Haiti

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.

Monday 15th November - It is with great pleasure that we announce this afternoon 360 Water Survival Boxes together with 240 School in a Bag rucksacks left our depot in Somerset, England on rout by sea freight for Haiti.  The shipments Estimated Time of Arrival in Port au Prince (Haiti) is mid December.. Please follow this page for updates on the shipments progress. Thank you for your support and patience.
