Aquabox Distribution in Mogadishu
To support communities in need, HIJRA worked to distribute 500 Aquabox filtration systems in 6 areas of Mogadishu; Hodan, Jaamadadda, Bondhere, Shangani, Wadajir and Dharkenley.
The Aquaboxes equipped with; water purification tablets, essential hygiene items, plastic sheeting, children's toys, clothing and learning equipments were distributed to the most vulnerable; physically impaired, women headed households and families with severely malnourished children.
The AQUABOX, a robust plastic tank, can be used to purify up to 1,100 liters of polluted water, providing up to 5,000 cups of safe clean drinking water- enough to last a family of four, drinking 10 cups per day, four months.-
"We are very grateful to receive such a generous donation. As we gear up for the Cholera season the filtration system coupled with its welfare materials will truly help to prevent unnecessary loss of life." HIJRA WASH Program Officer
