Optimized bali 1

In the remote Bali village of Tianyar thousands of people were evacuated from the danger zone of Mt Agung which continues to threaten to errupt.

These people lived  on the slopes of Mt Agung, away from the places where medical facilities, schools and jobs are scarce.

Life has been put on hold after they were moved from their homes and places of employment.

To compound their problems the water supply in the evacuation camp is contaminated.

This is where Disaster Aid Australia stepped in as part of their 'Safe Water for Every Child' program.

Partnering with the East Bali Poverty Project,a SkyHydrant filters has been installed at Tianyar to give clean, safe water and help the children attend school without the burdon of water borne illnesses.

Disaster Aid Response Team members Phillip Gribble, Andrew Gunn and Trainee Mark Hosking are planning to install a further two SkyHydrants in the next few days.

The residents of the Tianyar evacuation camp thank the Rotary Club of Scarborough who generously sponsored this filter.

Report from Enio Bellé

jornal 4On February 16-17 Disaster Aid Brazil was promoting the Disaster Aid story at the first international fair for Rotary projects at Foz do Iguacu, Brazil.

At least 31 District Governors from all of Latin America participated in the event which confirmed cross country partnerships to work on projects for more than U$1,500,000 dollars in global grants.

The co-ordinators of the event invited Disaster Aid Brazil to show the activities carried out around the world.

Their main goal was to demonstrate the strength of Rotary Clubs joining to optimize the power of each club to make bigger projects allowing us to help more people.

The presentation was very important for the dissemination of the Disaster Aid international project and the Audience was keen to see all the work that is being done around the world by DAI.

Many future visits to districts in Brazil have been scheduled to present the Disaster Aid Brazil project, and to find new donors and partners.

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.Safe water Logo 3 page 001
