Rain has finally eased in Kerala, hit by the worst floods in nearly a century.
Over 300 people have died in the southern state that has suffered damages during this monsoon season.
An estimated 800,000 are temporarily displaced.
Thousands of people are still feared stranded, awaiting relief and rescue.
The Indian National Crisis Management Committee (NCMC) has directed that focus should now be on provision of emergency supplies of;
Restoration of essential services such as power, fuel, communications and transport links is also vital.
As flood water recedes in Kerala, Disaster Aid International is responding in partnership with the Indian Red Cross and Indian Rotary Clubs.
Initially 200 tents prepositioned in India will be despatched.
As the flood water continues to subside we will be looking at how we can assist with the recovery from the disaster by using Smart Aid to rebuild homes and SkyHydrants to deliver Safe Water.
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.
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.
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.
