A recent front page in the Philippine Star newspaper showed SkyHydrant™ units, provided by Disaster Aid,being used to supply safe water at Evacuation Centers in Mindanaw
The people in the Evacuation centres have been displace from Marawi City as a result of an armed uprising by Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State of Iran and Syria (ISIS).
Our local partner Balay Mindanaw are using the units in conjunction with fire engines which cart raw water to the temporary evacuation centres
The water is then pumped to header tanks feeding SkyHydrants™ which filter the water, and deliver it direct to the residents containers minimising the chance of contamination.
Although the uprising in Marawi is coming to an end there has been extensive damage to properties.
It may be some time before everyone can leave the evacuation centres and return to their homes.
