Aquaboxes are a project of the Rotary Club of Stratford, which tries to keep a supply of them on hand to ship to disaster zones as needed. One box is enough to keep a family of five supplied with 10 cups of drinking water each daily for one year. Unpotable water from a creek or pond can be made drinkable using the kit’s filters.
Any circumstance that causes the local water to become undrinkable. Typically – floods, wind storms, earthquakes, tsunamis, and simply underdeveloped areas that have not recouped from previous severe water stress.
We ship boxes to relief agencies in advance, where they are stored, In the event that a disaster occurs, they are readily available to be delivered and monitored by carefully selected relief agency partners.
Nepal, Vanuatu, Philippines, Haiti, Bolivia, Cuba, Honduras, Nicaragua, Peru, Senegal, and Pakistan,. The Rotary Club of Stratford considers the provision of Aquaboxes to destinations in the Western Hemisphere to be our number 1 priority. In extreme circumstances we have helped in other areas.
