The Aquabox 30 is a plastic water tank that contains a filter cartridge and a larger supply of water-treatment tablets.  Each Aquabox 30 can be used to purify up to 3,300 litres of polluted water, making it safe and pleasant to drink.  3,300 litres is equivalent to 15,000 cups, enough say for a group of four persons to drink ten cups of water a day each for a year.

The Aquabox has been rigorously tested and meets the World Health Organisation safety limits.

Our boxes were despatched as part of  the following recent assignments: 200 to Afghanistan, 30 to Goma and 1000 the Gambia.
