DA Malaysia Ban Chaikuan

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.

Housing

Two months after the earthquake many homes still looked like this photograph.

Disaster Aid have been  helping local people build back better by providing materials including steel reinforcing to make new houses much more resistant to earthquakes.

36 housholds were identified in Nuevo Palestina, Jiquipilas and Rizo De Oro, Cintalada for repair.

A typical material list per household was: 

  • Chain reinforcing steel to link the footings to the wall
  • Steel vertical pillars for The four corners and door frame
  • 55 bags.of cement for block making & footings
  • 12 sheetsof corrugated roofing iron
  • 4 steel rafters
  • 100 roofing screws

At just over $1,000 per household.

Chiapas Hospital

A triple SkyHydrant unit at the Chiapas Hospital has been installed 

After testing by Mexican Authorities the water has been approved as suitable for consumption.

This will result in considerable savings to the local hospital which has previously had to rely on daily purchases of bottled water.

 

School

The Ignacio Zaragoza Primary School has been re-opened following repairs to damaged classrooms.

You Could Help By Giving A Community Clean Water

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.

Bhutan Skyhydrant Bongo

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.
