The Cost of Safe Water?

Aussie dollarLess than 1 Australian Dollar / Person / Year for a Village

That includes tanks and pipes that we purchase locally.

Once installed the unit will provide bacteria free water for ten years for up a community of up to 700 people.

$5,000 / 10 years / 700people = $0.71 / person per year.

A $5,000 skyhydrant Installation to serve a school can keep over 1,000 pupils safe.

That is a cost of less than $0.50 / pupil / year.

We have now partnered with the Indonesian Red Cross who are planning to set up 8 temporary resettlement camps outside Palu.

The Indonesian Authorities believe these camps will be needed for at least 3 years while they work on the reconstruction of Palu .

We will be providing SkyHydrant water filters at each site to protect the health of all the residents.

These SkyHydrants, which can be installed for $5,000, will provide safe drinking water at the extremely low cost of under $5 per person for the next 3 years

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.
