Help us to fill the next batch of Aquaboxes!
Can you contribute items to the Aquabox scheme to aid communities affected by the Nepal earthquake? Please see the list of items below. There is a box at the back of church for items.
If you have a spare moment, take a look at the Aquabox website: http://www.aquabox.org/
Aquabox was launched as a charity in 1992 by the Rotary Club of Wirksworth in Derbyshire, UK, with support from Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland and has retained that status to this day. Aquabox is one of the earliest of Rotary International (Britain and Ireland) box aid schemes.
It set out to provide safe drinking water and welfare aid items to communities affected by man-made and natural disasters and to areas affected by on-going deprivation.
In Bhaktapur, part of the Kathmandu Valley, a UN World Heritage Site in Nepal, thousands of houses have collapsed, and many of the heritage buildings have been destroyed by the major earthquakes and aftershocks that have devastated the country. Rotary members in Bhaktapur, one of the most densely populated towns in Nepal, are asking the international Rotary community for help and resources.
