Aquabox is a community project set up and managed by the Rotary Club of Wirksworth to provide safe drinking water, through the use of filtration units, and humanitarian aid to crisis zones around the world.

Since its formation in 1992, Aquabox has distributed more than 110,000 boxes to countries suffering from natural and man-made disasters, helping hundreds of thousands of people.  As well as a water-filtration unit, each Aquabox contains a variety of humanitarian aid items, including cooking utensils, personal hygiene equipment, tools, shelter materials, baby and children’s clothing and educational items.

Natural disasters happen all too often and when they do people are in desperate need of safe drinking water and humanitarian help. Aquabox helps by sending water filters and aid boxes to the communities worst affected.
