Disaster Aid Australia’s main reason for installing SkyHydrants is to protect the health of children like this young boy in the Camarines Sur Region of the Philippines.
It is not the only advantage this technology has. . . .
The overall cost of water from a Skyhydrant is less than 1 cent per litre over the life of the system.
This compares with 50 cents per litre for a small bottle of water bought locally.
Even buying a 5 litre bottle of water, the cost is around 40 cents per litre.
This doesn’t seem much to Australians, but in the Philippines the minimum daily wage is around $7.
If a family buys a 5 litre drinking water from the supermarket that may be almost a third of someones wage.
Low cost safe water means that more money is available for food, clothes and other necessities.
