PORTISHEAD’s youngest Rotarians are sending life-saving equipment overseas to help disaster victims.
Trinity Primary School’s Rotakids, junior members of the Rotary family, collected essential items from baby clothes and plastic cups to glue and screws, to fill an Aquabox, a container supplied by the Rotary club, which also includes water purification equipment.
A Rotary spokesman said: “Disasters come in many forms from earthquakes and cyclones to floods and refugee displacement, but all of them result in the urgent need for a supply of safe drinking water.
“Once the gifts inside the Aquabox have been removed, the filter provided can be used with the plastic tank to purify up to 18,000 litres of polluted water, making it safe to drink.”
The Trinity Aquabox could be sent, along with other boxes, to any destination in the world where people are suffering as the result of disaster.
