Do these children deserve Safe Water?
Currently these children and thousands like them have to rely on water that is either unsafe or expensive.
Sometimes it comes from contaminated wells and bores.
Sometimes the schools buy in water. . . . but it means less money for books and other teaching aids.
Disaster Aid is planning to do something about this in the Camarines Sur region of the Philippines.
We are ready to start a project to install SkyHydrants in 17 schools in conjunction with the Rotary Clubs of Naga, and Goa-Partido in the Philippines.
If you would like to help us provide 'Safe Water for Every Child' then you, your club, or organisation could sponsor a SkyHydrant at one of the schools for $5,000.
Will you help us?
Although the Eruption of Mount Agung in Bali has dropped from the International News many Balinese people are still severely affected.
Currently there are 19 camps for evacuees from towns close to the Volcano that need to be supplied with food and bottled water.
These camps are in Tianyar Tengah (Karangasem), and in Tembok, Sambirenteng, Penuktukan, Les and Tejakula in Buleleng regency.
Disaster Aid Australia has agreed to help the East Bali Poverty Project with their vital humanitarian aid to refugees from the volcanic eruption.
Two of our Disaster Aid Response Team (DARTs) will be flying to Bali with Skyhydrants to provide safe drinking water to four of the camps.
Removing the need to buy bottled water will allow money to be spent on other items of vital aid.
