This amounts includes Disaster Aid liaising with local organisations and communities to ensure the SkyHydrant is installed, operated, and maintained for the long term.
Before we install a SkyHydrant the community is required to agree to is to meet the cost of a replacement filter in the future.
For donations of $5,000 a sponsorship plaque will be attached to the SkyHydrant. (We can also assist you in providing local contacts if you want to visit the community you are supporting)
We provide regular updates on the water projects through our website, Facebook page, and quarterly newsletters.
