Water Survival Box aid is being sent to:  Philippines

Typhoon Rolly and Ulysses hit the Philippines

Just days after the onslaught of Typhoon Goni (known as Rolly), Typhoon Vamco (Ulysses) roughly crossed the same track and made landfall. Rolly and Ulysses both left trails of destruction and affected millions of people in eight regions, hundreds of thousands of which remain displaced. This caused significant damage to the surrounding area, with volcanic mud flows, flooding and wind damaging nearly 80% of shelters there.

Type of disaster: Typhoon

Tuesday the 1st December 2020:-   200 Water Survival Boxes left our Depot in Westfield Industrial Estate, Midsomer Norton on route to the Philippines. The aid is scheduled to be airfreighted on Thursday the 3rd from Heathrow airport on its way to Manila, where our partners in this relief project, Jane Walker (Purple Community Fund - formerly the Philippines Children’s Fund) will supervise collection and distribution of the boxes.

Wednesday 9th December 2020:-   Legal documentation FedExed to Manila. This will help with their smooth transition through customs. Boxes are likely to be collected from the airfreight holding area over the weekend. Then start the next part of their journey to the people in need.

Saturday 12th December 2020 :-  Finally the mammoth job of loading 200 boxes onto their trucks has taken place. The Upskills Foundation volunteers  have now collected the boxes from the holding area and can start the process of redistribution. This much needed aid relief from Water Survival Box will go to those families which have been most affected following the recent typhoons. A spokesmen from the Upskills Foundation said “The generosity they have shown us at this time is most valued, it will help 200 families get through this difficult time.

January 2021 :-   Our onsite partners, Upskills + Foundation and Purple Community Fund have been busy over the holiday delivering the boxes from our consignment to those in most need due to the effects caused by Typhoon Rolly and Ulysses. Grateful recipients express their gratitude “We were so very grateful to receive this disaster aid from Water Survival Box. The box contained everything that you would need in an emergency situation” This now marks the conclusion of this Storyline. Once again thank you for your support. Without it this could not have taken place.

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
