This year we will be part of the Christmas Appeal albeit at a lower level than in the past. Many thanks those who have pledged support. We need to match those donations during the period December 4 from noon. At midnight the campaign will pause until midday on Saturday 5 December when any remaining match funding will be released. It will remain available until 14 December or whenever it is used up.

In order to access the match funding that we have secured in the run up to the Challenge, we need to receive online donations to    https://secure.thebiggive.org.uk/project/wsb  on the Big Give.

Thanks to the combined efforts of the Humanity First teams from UK and India working with a local Nepalese NGO (Ahmadiyya Sangh Nepal) under the overall direction of Dr Aziz Hafiz, HF-UK’s Director of International Disaster Aid, the first consignment of 500 Water-Survival Boxes have been distributed. They were allocated to families in need following the two earthquakes that devastated their homes and communities in the Lalitpur District, south of KathmanduView/download full report.


More than 6,600 dead, hundreds of thousands made homeless and/or without access to clean water
Humanity First UK (one of our regular aid agencies) have sent a team to assist. We have agreed to provide 500 packed Water-Survival Boxes that will be sent to Kathmandu as soon as HF-UK have obtained the necessary customs clearance from the Nepalese authorities. The 12 strong medical/logistics team has been deployed to the Gorkha District (site of the earthquake epicentre) where they will be providing much needed medical assistance and developing a detailed needs assessment to be used in the distribution of our Water-Survival Boxes as soon as they arrive.
The enormity of this disaster is such that we have appealed for donations to cover the cost of a further 500 WSBs (£75,000) so that we can send further aid to Nepal and rebuild our stock in preparation for future disasters.

Distribution of 800 Water-Survival Boxes continues on Olotayan island off the north coast of Panay, Western Visayas, Central Philippines.

800 Water-Survival Boxes have been distributed in the vicinity of Roxas City and on Olotayan island off the north coast of Panay, Western Visayas, Central Philippines. Members of the Humanity First Canada team, led by Dr Aslam Daud, can be seen taking the boxes by boat to the island, offloading them, and then demonstrating the water purification kits and other contents before handing them to families in need.

During the past year, as we have responded to disasters in the Far East, Indian sub-continent, Africa, and Caribbean, our stock of uncommitted packed Water-Survival Boxes has reduced significantly and it is vital that we now attract the funds needed to restock. Just to add a further 1,000 standard Water-Survival Boxes will cost some £150,000 and we hope Clubs that are in latest-news.htmla position to assist respond now and that all Clubs build in a forward commitment to assist during the new Rotary Year. Whilst Rotarians in Chelwood Bridge continue to provide all the necessary management and practical effort required we are heavily dependent on our Rotary friends across RIBI and overseas to provide the funds to 'make it happen'.
£150 pays for the cost of a standard WSB and £350 a multi-pack of five (water purification kits only) both including the cost of air freight to ensure the boxes get to those in need as quickly as possible. Remember that as a pure Rotary charity all the management of the Water-Survival Box project and the practical work involved in getting boxes packed is done by members of our Rotary Club with hands-on help from other volunteers from Rotary, Inner Wheel and our local schools and community groups. We have no paid employees and every pound donated goes directly to pay for the boxes, contents, our fixed costs and air freight.
