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.
In Southern Brazil Disaster Aid Brazil (DAB) volunteers have been busy.
This has included building excelllant relationships with Brazilian Security Departments, and Civil Defense Authorities.
Those relationships have included joint training exercises.
The photograph on the right shows DAB volunteers training in Southern Brazil, to be able to react to environmental disasters.
At the completion of the training the volunteers received a certificate recognising Disaster Aid Brazil. as partners with the Environmental Police of Santa Catarina State.
