The charity created a water system that can deliver 2,000 litres of water on each journey. The water is delivered to families who live in situationes where they do not have a water supply.
We deliver around 50,000 litres of water each week
Our network of 120 IBC containers are refilled on a regular basis.
Standard IBC Containers
Network of 120 second hand IBC containers that were previously used for food processing.
The families use the water for cleaning clothes, showering, cleaning dishes and general household cleaning.
In order for the water to remain usuable we regularly clean the IBC tanks to ensure that the water is always in optimum condition.
We distribute the water in two trucks. An Iveco Daily 160 which can tranport 1800 litres of water in each journey. The other is a Ford Transit 350 which transports up to 2000 litres of water on each journey.
