AidEx Brussels

AidEx is the leading international event dedicated to the unique needs of development and aid professionals across the world; held over two days annually at Brussels Expo, in Belgium.

AidEx is recognised as a major platform for networking, making new contacts and doing business. By taking part, you will forge new relationships in the community, raise awareness of your organisation and be involved in the sourcing of new solutions to improve the efficiency of aid delivery.


AidEx Africa

Now in it's fourth year, AidEx Africa is a two-day high-profile conference which takes place annually in Nairobi, Kenya. AidEx Africa was developed as a satellite event to the already well-established AidEx conference and exhibition for humanitarian and development aid, held each year in Brussels.

AidEx Africa attracts over 300 delegates from the Government of Kenya, UN agencies, Kenyan Red Cross and leading NGOs from Africa and beyond.

Haiti campLifesaver produces safe, portable water filters and purifiers, designed for use in emergency scenarios. They will be exhibiting their innovative products on stand C112 at AidEx 2016. 

When you think of swamps, you probably think of murky, disease-carrying, insect-ridden places. You certainly wouldn’t think of them as a source of drinkable or usable water. But with the right tools, swamps and ground water actually can become reliable water sources for thousands of families who have no other option.

Lifesaver’s innovative products are designed to make water purification as safe and accessible as possible. Lifesaver produces water storage and filtration units, such as the Lifesaver cube, that eradicate 99.99% of viruses, 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.9% of cysts.

To keep risk of contamination to a minimum, the Lifesaver cube actually stores dirty water, which is then simply filtered as needed. The cube is easy to use and maintain, meaning that there is less need for educational messages or training, as well as a lower risk of improper use. Most importantly, the cube has been designed to be failsafe – when the filter stops working, water simply won’t come out. It will only ever pass filtered water. This means there is no risk of families and vulnerable people accidentally consuming unsafe water.

In the wake of a humanitarian disaster, establishing a safe water supply is of utmost importance. Without clean, drinkable water, these communities become susceptible to outbreaks of diseases like cholera and typhoid, and countless lives can be lost as a result.

To combat this, Lifesaver works hand-in-hand with Oxfam and the UK Government’s Rapid Response Facility to ensure that Lifesaver products can be deployed to enhance aid efforts within 72 hours of such crises. In the days after Haiti was struck by Hurricane Matthew, Lifesaver cubes were distributed to over two thousand families in need of a clean water supply, and Lifesaver products also provided vital emergency water filtration in the aftermath of the 2015 Nepal earthquake. The products provided a lifeline to people with no other way of accessing clean water and no idea of how long it would take for safe water access to be restored.South Sudan

The cube is also a far more sustainable solution than other water treatment options. On average, the Lifesaver cube can filter 5,000 litres of water before the filter needs to be replaced. Based on an average family treating 12 litres per day, this means the cube will last for over a year. Its longevity and portability reduces dependency on additional outside support and leaves families free to travel to safety without having to stay close to a steady supply chain. Earlier this year, Lifesaver worked in partnership with Oxfam to distribute over 2,300 Lifesaver cubes to displaced people in South Sudan.

Lifesaver’s innovative designs have given thousands of people access to clean drinking water, regardless of their location or circumstances. Water is a fundamental human necessity, and Lifesaver’s products can help to make it safe for everyone and save countless lives in the process.
