Disaster Aid Malaysia have been busy working at improving the water supply to the Ban Chaikuan Police Border School.
This 'Safe Water for Every Child' project involved replacing existing non functional equipment with a compact Skyhydrant GEM unit.
The project also involved re-purposing their clean water dispenser, tank and pump to work with the new Skyhydrant.

Disaster Aid are driven by the ongoing disaster of childhood death and illness through contaminated water.
Under the Banner of Safe Water for Every Child we are using our funds to install SkyHydrants in villages around the world.
We help the local community to build their own skyhydrant installations to give them a sense of ownwership.
It also allows us to keep the costs low.
A typical Skyhydrant installation means 100 -200 families can have safe water.
Each complete installation costs us around $7,000 with an initial life of up to ten years. (a replacement filter will cost less than $2,000)
If you would like to see more children having access to safe water you, your organisation, or company could support a skyhydrant installation.
Currently we are working on projects in:
