 In late October 2017, the Rotary Club of Phnom Penh sent over 90 Aquaboxes, supplied by Rotary Club of Eltham, into Banteay Meanchey Province, north-west Cambodia, to support the victims of flooding.  Now the resupply of Aquaboxes to Cambodia has commenced with a packing session down at the Shed. 120 Aquabox Family boxes are ready and will be dispatched to the Rotary Club of Phnom Penh, to replenish their prepositioning supply.  With regular problems of flooding in adjoining areas these boxes will provide a family with:  two carbon activated filters; a dispensing tap; water purification tablet sets; strainer; two buckets for collecting water, and an instruction picturegram. It also contains new, specifically purchased, humanitarian goods to meet the basic needs of the recipients ‐ two cotton blankets; melamine eating set ‐ comprising a set of four plates, bowls and mugs; a tin "billie";  biodegradable soap; multi-tool pliers; LED torch; claw hammer; 2 kg of mixed nails; handsaw; 50 metres of rope; knife, fork and spoon set; tarpaulin, and trenching tool, and most importantly two double treated mosquito nets.  Each Aquabox after emptied of its cargo will provide a family with 2000 litres of fresh drinking water, using its unique sanitising and filtering system. Thus preventing the outbreak of water born diseases and saving children's lives.. 
The members of the Rotary Club of Eltham and Phnom Penh thank The Hallmarc Group for their generous support of Aquabox Australia.
