We have written before  about how Aireborough Rotary has supported the Aquabox project to bring clean water to natural and man made disaster areas in our blog Stamping down on Disease: at home and abroad.

Without clean water and sanitation then Rotary’s other development goals in peace,health, literacy and community development are frustrated.  Water and sanitation are crucial for health, education and economic development

Aireborough has also supported for many years the UK based Water Aid charity. A  charity offering practical solutions to providing clean water and efficient sanitation in developing countries. Water Aid
