A box provides a supply of clean water for a family for up to a year, plus other essential items to help them re-build their lives. Managed by Worldwaterworks Ltd and supported by Rotary International in Great Britain & Ireland (RIBI), the charity has responded to over 25 natural disasters around the world since it was established following the Asian Tsunami in 2006
(worldwaterworks.org Charity No 1116432 Company No 5903142)
The Water Survival Box is a fully paid for product full of new items and does not need filling by external organisations. The new items will be tailored to suit the disaster locations. The cost of a survival box is Ł150. (inclusive of airfreight costs)
Purchases can be made online and we would appreciate your support.
WorldWaterWorks is managed by the Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge.
WATER-SURVIVAL BOX SCHOOLS PRESENTATION – download here
Following requests from a number of Rotary Clubs in RIBI our ‘Schools PowerPoint Presentation’ is now available to download from the website. The presentation has been developed by Trustee and Past Club President Ken Biggs (former Headteacher) and delivered to primary and junior schools in North East Somerset. It had been designed for delivery in a School Assembly (typically 10 minutes). Schools value it for its own sake but also as a reinforcement to curricular studies related to climate change, the developing world, and in terms of raising the pupils awareness of the wider world and how we are in a position to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Wherever possible a Demonstration Water-Survival Box should be displayed – we can advise on the location of the nearest to your Club. A brochure, leaflet and DVD can also be provided where more detailed information is required.
WATER-SURVIVAL BOXES SENT TO SOUTHERN MOZAMBIQUE – MARCH 2013 -
AREA AFFECTED EXTENDS FROM LIMPOPO FLOOD PLAIN SOUTH TO CAPITAL CITY OF MAPUTO
Rtn David Grant, Chairman of District 9400 Disaster Relief Committee recently asked for our help to alleviate the flooding disaster that has displaced tens of thousands of families in southern Mozambique. David is a member of the RC of Kayalami in Johannesburg, and his District covers the north east of South Africa, Swaziland, and the southern half of Mozambique. We were able to respond within 12 hours to which he commented ‘This really is Rotary in Action!’ Following confirmation that we could provide a supply of Water-Survival Boxes David travelled to Maputo (the capital city) where he met members of the three local Rotary Clubs, key members of the Mozambique Disaster Relief committee and the UN representative. The consignment of Water-Survival Boxes has arrived in Maputo, been cleared through customs and is ready for distribution. The Rotary Club of Polana in Maputo is taking the lead on behalf of Rotary and will be working in partnership with the Mozambican Government agency (INGC). As flood waters receded many of the displaced families are now able to return to their original areas where their traditional sources of potable water (wells and boreholes) were contaminated by the floodwaters. The WSBs will be used to ensure a means of purifying water until the usual sources can be made safe.

The World Water Challenge - because every drop counts
Worldwaterworks Ltd has launched 'The World Water Challenge' as a fundraising concept to run through the next Rotary year. We are challenging Rotary Clubs to reach into their communities and 'challenge' other organisations (for example, businesses, schools, youth groups, Inner Wheel clubs, etc) to also raise money for us. read more.....
Online shopping is becoming increasingly popular. If you shop online then it is now possible for the retailers you shop with to give back some of your money as a donation to WorldWaterWorks. Most major retailers participate in the scheme.
Just enter the link http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/watersurvivalboxes to register. Then all you need to do when you want to shop online is to open the easyfundraising website first (So why not save it as a ‘favourite’?) and visit your shop through them. The retailer will then give a percentage of what you spend to WorldWaterWorks.
There is also an ‘Easysearch’ page: http://watersurvivalboxes.easysearch.org.uk/ Every time you search the web using this instead of Google, you will be raising money for WorldWaterWorks. E.g. Each supporter can raise around Ł20 a year just by searching 10 times day. So why not make it your homepage?
Please ask your family and friends to also consider shopping in this way so that even more money can be raised.
