Report from Paul Mahata, Ph.D. Ambassador, Disaster Aid USA
I am back from a five-week visit to India having traveled to west, south, north, and east.
The need for clean drinking water is all over rural India.
Disaster Aid’s challenge to Indian Rotarians: “All children in India should have access to clean drinking water” is very appropriate.
Your hard work of carrying two SkyHydrant™units to India as “Check-in luggage” is paying off.
The unit at Navi Mumbai was exhibited at the District Conference, per Dharmendra (D.G.), and it was admired by all attendees there.
I am sure it will find its place at the demo site near Navi Mumbai very soon.
The unit at Purulia is now installed as: “SkyHydrant East in memory of Satnam Singh Rayat", father of Permi Rayat 20016-2017 President of the Rotary Club Of Endeavour Hills.
This first Sky-Hydrant unit supplies clean drinking water to 300 students of RSR Vidyapith high school.
Disaster Aid International's (DAI) generous donation of the SkyHydrant unit by is appreciated by the students and the nearby village residents.
The students love the water, and nearby village residents come and fill empty bottles and carry the water home for drinking purpose.
Our thanks to Purulia Rotary club and to RSR Vidyapith for installing the first demonstration unit of the SkyHydrant in India.
