What Disaster Aid Australia Is Doing To Help Peace
In 2017 during the Marawi Crisis in the Philippines we worked with our Philippine partner Balay Mindanaw to assist people displaced during the armed conflict.
We provided tents and SkyHydrants to keep people safe during the six months of fighting.
Balay Mindanaw have continued building peace in the Bangsamoro regions of Mindanao by improving the conditions of rural communities.
One of the key improvements has been, better health due to the provision of safe drinking water through our ‘Safe Water for Every Child‘ program.
This year the Board of DAA has chosen to commence the Bangsamoro Health and Peace Project.
The aim is to provide at least five communities a year with safe water for the next five years.
