ROTARY CLUB DE LA MANCHE
Rotary Club De La Manche Donate Two Shelterboxes and Two Aqua Boxes to the Syrian & Turkey Earthquake Appeal
The Shelterboxes, which cost £590 each, contain a range of selected items – as shown in the picture /consisting of tent, blankets, groundsheet, mosquito net, stove, water purification and cooking equipment, tool kit and child activity pack – to support a family in time of need. The robust green container can, once emptied, be used for storage. Shelterbox UK has close links with Rotary through the Helston - Lizard Rotary Club who adopted the concept as a Millenium Project. Shelterbox has a co-ordinator on the ground close to the main disaster site and therefore distribution is controlled to meet the needs of the families most affected. Some 90% of Shelterboxes delivered to disaster areas are with the assistance of local Rotarians

The Aqua Boxes Whenever a disaster strikes, whether it is natural or man-made, there is always an urgent need to provide safe drinking water to those affected. Water supplies are typically severely affected in the aftermath of a disaster. Water pipes may be destroyed or the water supply will be contaminated with water from sewage and drains. In these circumstances people have no choice but to collect water from available local sources, such as streams, rivers and wells. Such water is often contaminated and unsafe to drink. Water-borne diseases such as cholera will spread rapidly and will affect particularly the more vulnerable young and older members of a community. So how does Aquabox meet the challenge of providing safe drinking water in times of crisis? Research in the field has identified two requirements: a water supply for schools, medical clinics, and other community centres; and a water supply for family groups of about five individuals. Our innovative AquaFilter technology produces safe and clean drinking water instantly and reliably without the need for chemicals. The AquaFilter Family and Community units are based on sub-micron filters which are impenetrable to bacteria and most viruses. The Aquafilter Family and Community units were developed by the Safe Water Trust and the Family units are assembled under license by Aquabox.
