Typhoon Mangkhut Devastates The Philippines

Typhoon Mangkhut tore through the Philippines' main island of Luzon leaving a trail of devastation.mangkhut 2

Winds of 185km/h ripped off roofs, felled trees, with heavy rain causing extensive flooding.

The rain also caused over 30 major landslides across tha affected area.

Officially 40 people have died, but the toll  is expected to rise as response teams reach the many rural areas still cut off by the flooding.

With sewerage systems being overwhelmed contaminated water is a major health risk.

The typhoon also flattened homes, flooded large swathes of countryside and devastated rice fields.

At least 5,000,000 million people live in the affected area with many thousands evacuated.

Several evacuation centres have been destroyed and phone networks are down.

 

Our Philippine partner Balay Mindanaw is currently on the way to assist with a Disaster Aid SkyHydrant.

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.
