October 13th is the United Nations Day of Disaster Aid Reduction.
At Disaster Aid Australia we are more known for Disaster Response but we are also involved in risk reduction, through resiliance.
Making Communities More Resiliant
Some of the ways we improve resiliance are
Training Not Doing
Our volunteers look to train and assist local people to help themselves.
This gives them the confidence to tackle future disasters.
It has also enabled DAA to continue to deliver Aid during the COVID pandemic.
Build Back Better
When we help people rebuild ther homes we provide information to help them build more resiliant houses.
This ‘Build Back Better’ approach includes things like stronger foundations and bracing systems that resist high winds.
Resiliant Water Systems
Our SkyHydrant water filters operate without the need for electricity or treatment chemicals.
When power supplies are down people can still access safe drinking water.
