Aquabox is a volunteer-run disaster relief charity which manufactures robust hand-pumped water filters and send them to disaster areas and conflict zones around the world so that people living in extreme deprivation can at least have access to clean, safe drinking water. The Aquabox filter uses ultrafiltration technology to remove the bacteria and viruses that cause diseases like cholera, typhoid and polio – and one filter can process up to half a million litres of water. Come and see the filter in action, and find out more about Aquabox and its work. Registered charity no 1098409.
