Cyclone Winston has left more than 40 people confirmed dead, with some 14,000 people sheltering in 274 evacuation centres around Fiji.
The UN reports that hundreds of homes and many schools and vital infrastructure have been damaged or destroyed.
Disaster Aid International (Aust.) is working to provide desperately needed aid to Fijians after the cyclone’s horrendous devastation. That includes liaising with our Rotary contacts and agencies in that country. Aid groups and government authorities are now racing to deal with a critical need for clean water, health supplies and emergency accommodation.
Your donation will help Disaster Aid International (Aust.) respond with Family Survival Packs, Home Repair Kits and, most importantly SkyHydrant™ water purification systems and Sawyer water filters.Clicke here to download an appeal letter / donation form.

At the Conference, attendees heard about Disaster Aid deployments from the DARTs who had been there, and from keynote speaker Rhett Butler AM,Chairman of The Sky Juice Foundation™. The Foundation,based in NSW is the designer and manufacturer ofthe SkyHydrant™ water filtration system.
The Conference was an excellent opportunity to discuss the aims of DAI, its achievements and how its procedures and communication could be improved.
