In 2017 Disaster Aid Director John O'Reilly visited the Philippines to check on Disaster Aid Australia SkyHydrant Projects.
These installations are carried out in conjunction with our local partner Balay Mindanaw.
Interviews with members of the communities reinforced how deeply they appreciated the Safe Water that resulted from the SkyHydrants.
Here are just two of our speakers for our Conference on the Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th May at the Dandenong Club:
Yeshey Dorji will be telling us how the Rotary Club of Thimpu and the Bhutan Toilet Organisation (BTO) have worked with Disaster Aid Australia to provide safe drinking water to communities in Bhutan.
Yeshey’s early career has included the Bank of Bhutan, the Export Division of the Ministry in Trade.
He became Bhutan’s first importer of computers in 1986 and started the first desktop publishing business in the country.
In 1999 he set up the first private website on the newly established internet service./p>
In early 2004 he gave up all business activities to focus on his highly successful photography career.
Dan competed in the K-2, 500 m sprint canoe event with a silver medal in 2000 and a bronze in 1996.
As a successful elite sportsman, now a management consultant, he is obsessed with taking that which is average and turning it into a winning culture.
This includes partnering with people to implement the right programs where extraordinary results are inevitable, and delivering skills and insight to achieve goals and live out values.
