In the financial year, which has just closed, Disaster Aid Australia delivered $240,661 in international aid to developing countries.
This was slightly over our annual income for the year of $239,144 (which was down approximately 30% from our pre COVID income).
The result is due to the DAA Board deciding in June 2020 that the COVID 19 Pandemic was a ‘Disaster‘ and many of the developing countries, which we help, would be hit harder than Australia.
Accordingly a considerable portion of the financial reserves that enable us to respond to disasters has been used over the past 12 months.
This 3 minute video shows photographs of the many aid projects we have assisted in the last 12 months.
With the pandemic travel restrictions we have only been able to deliver this aid due to the strong partnerships we have built up since DAA was founded in 2010.
Our Philippine partner Balay Mindanaw was also able to build links with the following Rotary Clubs during the Typhoon Goni response: RC of Pasig, RC of Legaspi North, and RC of West Cagayan de Oro.
We also wish to thank: Rotary Clubs, individuals, and companies around Australia for their continuing support of DAA in what has been a difficult year.
