Peru faces one of its worst emergencies in recent years, with over 1 million people affected by the torrential rains, flooding and landslides which have hit the country since January. Many of the families evacuated by the Peruvian army and the municipal government saw all their belongings and homes destroyed by the raging flood water.

It was a pleasure to welcome the year 6 group from Matlock Bath Holy Trinity primary school to the Aquabox depot on Friday 14th July. During their visit the children were shown a short introductory film of what Aquabox is all about, given a tour of the depot and saw how our water filters turn dirty, potentially contaminated, water into clean drinking water.

Aquabox continues to provide aid to countries around the world where it is most needed and there is no access to safe clean drinking water and our latest consignment of aid boxes and water filters has left the depot destined for Uganda as part of our continued support for the famine victims in East Africa.
Aquabox volunteers decorated this beautiful tree as part of this year's Wirksworth Christmas Tree Festival. The tree is decorated with the humanitarian items that we send in our boxes (though for obvious logistical reasons heavier items such as hammers had to go around the bottom!) We wish for an end to the suffering of all those around the world who are victims of man-made and natural disasters, and may they find some joy in 2017. We will continue to do whatever we can to help those in need, and with your kind support we can do more.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the tens of thousands of people who remain trapped inside a war zone in eastern Aleppo. These include incredibly brave team members from our aid distribution partner Hand in Hand for Syria, who we have been working with for over a year.
