A couple of reports have been issued covering

  • The arrival of the gifts

We urgently need to replace stock (with this consignment a total of 1,600 boxes will have been sent this year to disasters in the Philippines, Comoros Islands, Chad, Mali, and Haiti). Each Standard WSB costs £150 and a Multi-Pack of five (water purification only) boxes costs £350. If we are to be able to continue this level of response it is vital that we have the support of ideally all Rotary and Inner Wheel Clubs throughout RIBI. Donations should be sent to Worldwaterworks Ltd at the Westfield Business Centre, Second Avenue, Westfield Trading Estate, Midsomer Norton BA3
