Disaster Aid In Bhutan and Nepal

Disaster Aid Response Team members Andrew Gunn and Phillip Gribble are currently in Bhutan and Nepal.

They are suppling and installing 4 SkyHydrants in Bhutan and 2 in Nepal.bongo2

Most schools in Bhutan and Nepal have unsafe drinking water which can be contaminated with dirt in the rainy season and bacteria such as E Coli, Typhus, and other diseases which cause respiratory illness’ and blindness.

Student absenteeism averages around 5% to 10% due waterborne illness.

As education is one of the best ways these generations will improve their own lives and help to continue building these nations.

Keeping these kids healthy and at school through the provision of safe water to drink and cook with is our challenge.

In selecting the sites DAA liaised with the Bhutan Education and Health Departments and also received a request from the King of Bhutan's Welfare Office.

Thanks to our in country contacts  Mr Yeshey Hoorpilla of the Rotary Club of Thimpu, and the Bhutan Toilet Organisation (BTO) we have received great local support.

Bongos Village 2

These children were delighted to try the clean water at our first installation at their school in Bongo a small village with a population of around 300.
