Local Charity – Big Difference

At this time of year, we all think about giving back but humanitarian support is something that needs to happen all year round if we are to overcome some of the world’s biggest inequalities. That’s why TDP is proud to be ending another year having done some brilliant work with the charity AQUABOX.

Aquabox supplies water filters and humanitarian aid to disaster zones and conflict areas around the world. The Derbyshire based charity operates internationally, supplying simple ultra-filtration hand pumps to convert polluted water into clean, safe drinking water for drinking, cooking and washing. Transforming the lives of people suffering from extreme deprivation, Aquabox filters remove all common pathogens, including cholera, typhoid, dengue fever, guinea worm and many other water-borne diseases.

Since it was established in 1992, the charity has sent more than 110,000 aid boxes to more than 50 countries around the world

The charity has spent the year delivering much-needed filtration pumps to all areas of the world, from supporting the recovery of Ukraine with five different consignments, to delivering consignments to Nepal to support with natural disaster relief, helping those in refugees camps in Yemen and Pakistan (from Afghanistan), providing access to clean water following the floods in Malawi and Pakistan, we’ve been busy ensuring that clean drinking water is available to as many people as possible around the world.

Like most resources on our planet, we tend to take water for granted, particularly in developing countries where it’s quite literally on tap. Ensuring everyone can enjoy these very basic life benefits around the world, is critical for us.

If you’re looking for a charity to support throughout 2023, I highly recommend Aquabox for the fantastic work they do. To donate to this fantastic cause, visit the Just Giving page www.justgiving.com/campaign/Aquabox
