Disasters come in many forms - earthquake; cyclone; flood; refugee displacement - but all share a common factor. The most urgent single problem facing the relief agencies is the provision of a supply of safe drinking-water.

In some cases, it may be possible for the relief agencies to supply water from outside the affected area. In others, there is clearly a need for those suffering in the aftermath of a disaster to achieve an early, if temporary, self-sufficiency in the supply of safe drinking-water.


The Solution is AQUABOX, a robust plastic tank with a family-sized filter unit known as the AQUAFILTER and packed with essential welfare items for a disaster situation. Once the welfare contents have been removed, each AQUABOX can be used to purify up to 18000 litres of polluted water, making it safe and pleasant to drink. Thats enough for 22.5 litres/day of general use potable water for use by the family for a period two years.
