Cyclone Matthew left more than 1000 people confirmed dead in Haiti already one of the poorest countries in the world.
Disaster Aid worked with fellow Rotarians there to provide an appropriate emergency shelter and fresh water response.
Thanks to the generosity of fellow Rotarians, Disaster Aid Australia and our Rotary partners around the world have delivered our first Disaster Aid International school to Haiti.
- 150 Family Survival boxes to assist displaced survivors still
- 2 Disaster Aid medical tents to assist in the ongoing treatment of the ill.
- 9 Disaster Aid School kit contains enough school supplies for 80 school children, complete with their own rucksack and a Teacher’s kit – everything needed for the continuance of their schooling.
With many at risk of dying of water-borne cholera, we are also investigating our long-term Australian water solution, the SkyHydrant to ensure that these families have clean drinking water – a fundamental human right and in this instance a life-saving aid.
