  1. FIFTH Aquabox shipment delivered to Yemen and distributed.

Aquabox has been able to send its fifth shipment to Yemen. By working in partnership, this time with Water Survival Box and Jubilee Outreach Yorkshire (JOY), they have filled another 40-foot container with aid. This is a great example of partnership between Aquabox and other charities who share humanitarian aims and principles of service.

The Aquabox part of the shipment was 200 gold boxes, each of which contains a family water filter and various humanitarian aid items. Aquabox are proud to continue to send support to such a challenging destination and are most grateful to the agencies on the ground who ensure the proper distribution of the aid.

The fifth shipment recently arrived in the port of Aden ago and is currently being distributed.

 Cost to Aquabox of fifth shipment to Yemen.

    200 gold boxes @ £150 per box = £ 30,000, with each box including a family filter.

  

2. Total shipments to Yemen to date.

2021 to date – 200 Gold Boxes

2020 - 500 Gold Boxes

2020 - 5 Community Filters

2020 - 120 Family Filters

2019 - 270 Gold Boxes

2018 - 60 Gold Boxes (trial shipment)

Each of the 1030 Gold Boxes contains a Family Filter

 

3. Plan for a SIXTH shipment of aid to Yemen.

Aquabox will continue to offer help wherever they can with a sixth shipment to Yemen now in preparation. Funds are currently being raised to support this further shipment of aid.

Production at the depot has been impacted by the lockdown but is now making family filters at the rate of about 2/3 of the newly increased production capacity.

Please help support a sixth shipment of aid to Yemen. We are most grateful for the donations already received and transferred to Aquabox each month. The key limit to gold box production is the amount of donations received.

Every Gold box costs £150 before it even leaves the depot. Every community filter costs £250.
