Energy Globe Winner

Disaster Aid Australia wins the Energy Globe National Award for 2018

Safe water award

This international award was founded by the Austrian energy pioneer Wolfgang Neumann and is one of today’s most prestigious environmental awards.

The aim of the Awards is to present successful sustainable projects to a broad audience.

  

The Project 

Our submission was based on 'Safe Water for Every Child' as delivered in the Philippines. 

 

Summary of our Submission

The project’s aim is to provide clean water to communities across the Philippines in an effective, long term sustainable manner.

The method of ensuring clean water is to install community Skyhydrants which are low pressure ultra filtration units which remove bacteria from the water without the need for electrical power or chemicals.

Each Skyhydrant filter, provided by Disaster Aid Australia, can produce 20Litres per day, per person, of safe water for a community of up to 500 people.

The filters operate without any source of power if a gravity water supply is available.

The use of chemicals is limited to weekly cleaning only.

Disaster Aid Australia have trained our Philippine partner organization Balay Mindanaw in the installation and operations of the filters.

As the local installation work is carried out locally by Balay Mindenaw there is a huge cost saving compared with using expatriate installers.

To date over 40 Skyhydrants have been permanently installed and another 3 have been used in temporary mobile installations to help people displaced due to recent fighting by Islamic rebels in Marawi.

Safe Water Bhutan 2020

safewaterBhutan 002

Over the past year Disaster Aid Australia (DAA) has been working to help provide 'Safe Water for Every Child' to children at rural schools in Bhutan.

Bhutan.Zhemgang

The project has been in conjunction with our local partners; The Rotary Club of Thimphu, the Bhutan Toilet Organisation, and the Bhutan Ministry of Education.

A number of SkyHydrant installations have been completed, including this one at the Zhemgang school.

Tests on water quality, and attendance records of the schools, have shown we are making a real difference to the children's health.

A New Target

At a DAA Board meeting on the 12th May it was decided to adopt a target of achieving Safe Drinking Water for EVERY Rural School in Bhutan.

To meet this ambitious target we will need to raise $1,000,000 over the next 2 years.
