Our Philippine partner, Balay Mindanaw, have installed a Disaster Aid SkyHydrant in a displaced persons camp in Davao North.

The camp houses 300 indigenous people who have had to leave their homes as a result of armed conflict in the Davao del Norte area of the Philippines.

While news reports send photographs of the fighting what is sometimes forgotten is the daily struggles of those who have had to move away from their homes.

To get water mothers and children have to walk more than a kilometer every single day with a 5-gallon (almost 20kg) container on their back.

Even this water was contaminated with bacteria and has been identified as a major cause of illness in the camp.

For now, this Disaster Aid SkyHydrant will help protect the health of those in the camp by providing 5,000 litres of potable water every day.

Human dignity is threatened when people have no access to basic necessities like safe drinking water. 

It is a basic right regardless of situation, politics, gender, race, age or religion.
