Water Survival Box managed by Chelwood Bridge Rotary is already in touch with the Turkish and Syrian in-country teams of the International Medical Corps (a regular international NGO partner). The need for clean water solutions has already been established and the WSB trustees aim to provide at least 1,000 of their standard WSBs in the coming weeks. Each box is designed to provide essential survival items for a family of five and, most importantly, the means of converting contaminated water into safe drinking water. The Grifaid Family Filter can deliver 200,000 litres of safe water – sufficient for each family member to have 20 litres each day for five years. The cost of each box is just £150 and can mean the difference between life and death through drinking contaminated water.
We have now launched an urgent appeal for donations – with the initial target of £150,000 (1000 boxes). Donations, which can be gift-aided should be made online through our website www.watersurvivalbox.org or by cheque made out to Water Survival Box Limited and sent to our registered address: Broadway House, Third Avenue, Westfield Industrial Estate, Midsomer Norton BA3 4XD
