We have just reached a fantastic milestone! Our filter assemblers have produced the 20,000th Family Filter - a remarkable achievement. To put this into context, these filters will have had the potential to save well in excess of 120,000 lives, providing clean drinking water and preventing the spread of water-borne diseases.

Since news of Cyclone Idai hit the headlines the Aquabox team has been working flat out to establish secure links with distribution agencies in Zimbabwe, Malawi and Mozambique. Following much hard work by our volunteer filter assembly teams and packers we have air-freighted (Wednesday 3rd April) the following aid consignments. These are scheduled to arrive at their destination by 8th/9th April.

The Aquabox Trustees are very grateful for the knitted goods our hardworking supporters have kindly donated over the years. These woollies have been included as a part of our humanitarian aid packages that have been despatched to countries across the world in the aftermath of man-made and natural disasters. However, feedback from our partners and other organisations ‘on the ground’ indicates that we now need to re-consider what goes into our aid boxes.
