Water Survival Box aid is being sent to:  YEMEN


To maximise its effectiveness Water Survival Box aid is airlifted to its destination. But due to Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions placed upon the international transporting of freight, on this occasion we teamed up with Jubilee Outreach Yorkshire. With their assistance our boxes on this rare occasion were sent in containers by sea.



Type of disaster: CONFLICT




Since March 2015 - war has put 24 million Yemeni men, women and children in need of humanitarian assistance. Cholera is widespread and emergency levels of people needing clean water, toilets and hand washing facilities are widespread. 5 years on, the people of Yemen remain in the worst humanitarian crisis in the world

Each box contains an Aquafilter pump and health and hygiene items, stainless steel kitchen set, basic shelter, simple tools, and other necessary household items. The Aquafilter pump supplied in each box when attached to the box provided can then be filled with dirty water. When manually pumped through the pumps filter it is able to deliver 10 litres of safe drinking water per person each day and will provide for a family of five for up to five years



The container is due in Aden on October 20th- just return to this page, to follow further updates.


The container has now made it to Aden, however it is still on the ship. It is currently scheduled to be moved to the port on Saturday the 24th.  Once this happens and we have a delivery date we will post the information on this page

Thursday 29th of October:-  The local team ( representing J.O.Y.) is working with the port to clear the container. Due to the current number of vessels at the port this is expected to be completed in 1-2 weeks. Once the items have been cleared, they will move them to their warehouse where the WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) team will take inventory and prepare all items for distribution. Return to this page to follow developments.

Tuesday 17th of November.:-    We are still waiting on the container to be offloaded and cleared by customs. The port is still full which is why it is taking longer than usual for everything to be cleared. Once we have an update that customs has cleared the boxes, we will update you on this page. It is never straight forward in circumstances like these.






Thank you for raising funds that have enabled this chain of events to take place. Your aid has been instrumental in providing 10 liters of safe drinking water per person each day and will provide for a family of five for up to five years. Giving this family and families like them hope for the future
