Since its formation in 1992, Aquabox has distributed more than 110,000 humanitarian aid boxes to countries around the world suffering from natural or man-made disasters, helping hundreds of thousands of people in times of crisis.
Each box is designed for a family and contains over 70 humanitarian aid items in addition to an AquaFilter Family unit for providing safe drinking water, including:
• Shelter Materials & Tools
• Blankets and sheets
• Cooking Utensils
• Personal Hygiene Items
• Baby & Children’s Clothing
• Educational Items
• Children’s Toys
The boxes are packed by the volunteer Aquabox teams and filled with specially selected humanitarian goods to meet the basic needs of the recipients. Many of these items, such as the tools, cooking utensils and educational items, are purchased from carefully chosen suppliers. By centrally purchasing the goods on a wholesale basis, we are able to provide a very cost-effective and standardised humanitarian aid product.
Some items which go in the aid boxes, such as blankets, sheets, pillowcases, towels, baby and small children’s clothes and knitted teddies, are kindly donated by the our many supporters. If you would like to find out more about how you can help by donating items please go to the How You Can Help > Donate Items page.
