Today we are proud to announce DAI has achieved official Collaborative Organization status with Rotary International marking a major milestone in the journey of Disaster Aid International country partners around the world. (https://www.rotary.org/en/collaborating-organizations)

 

Disaster Aid International (DAI) was formed in 2010 with Disaster Aid partners in Australia, Canada, USA and the UK & Ireland.

Disaster Aid International’s mission is to provide relief to help rebuild communities in disaster hit areas anywhere in the world, primarily in the form of temporary shelter, home repair kits and water filtration systems or other non-food aid.

 

Our Rotary affiliations around the world allows us to coordinate and access areas after a disaster by utilizing the best of local knowledge and resources to assess the situation on-the-ground and customize our ‘Smartaid’ response.

At the heart of ‘Smartaid’ is the involvement of local resource partners especially Rotary clubs and the community to ensure that the aid provided:

  • Meets their requirements
  • Involves them in working with us as 'Partners'
  • Gives them 'Ownership' of the outcome

thereby partnering the community as 'A Resource Not Victims' and ‘Giving a hand up, not a handout’.

 

Disaster Aid International country partners around the world align to the Rotary six areas of focus and may actively be involved with the assessment and installation of clean water filtration systems.

Presently our global Disaster AId International country partners are;
