THANK YOU

From all those who Disaster Aid Australia has been able to help!

The Pandemic Effect

With the COVID lockdowns over the past two years many of our supporting Rotary Clubs have been unable to hold fundraising events.

Individual donors are also likely to have been impacted

Although donations have dropped below the pre-COVID levels we have been consistantly surprised that our income has exceeded our expectations.

Planning For the Future

With the support we have received in the later half of the 2021-2022 financial year we are now moving to confidently plan for the future.

This will include further ‘Safe Water for Every Child’ installations and being able to respond to disasters with ‘Smart Aid’.

Sponsored SkyHydrant Opportunities

We currently have the following Safe Water Projects ready to go:

  • Beyond Bhutan 2020: Although the last units for the original project have been shipped we have identified many other schools and colleges in Bhutan that need safe water.
  • Bangsamoro Health and Peace: Supporting Barangays (villages) in an region of the Philippines that recently suffered from civil unrest.
  • Mindanao Safe Water: Protecting rural barangays on the Island of Mindanao, Philippines.

We are also looking for opportunities to develop a project in East Timor.

You could help by supporting our ‘Safe Water For Every Child‘ projects in the Philippines or Bhutan.

Every $1 provides one person with safe water

Alternativly a general donation to our ‘Smart Aid‘ program will help us build up our funds to enable us to respond to disaster quickly and effectivly.
