While in the Philippines in August Disaster Aid Australia, in conjunction with our Philippine partner, Balay Mindanaw, formally launched our two new five year projects for the Philippines.
- Bangsamoro Health and Peace Project
- Mindanao Safe water Project
Each project is based on providing at least five SkyHydrant installations a year for the initial five years of the project.
Each installation will provide safe drinking water for a Barangay (village) of 700 residents
At the launch we were able to announce, thanks to support from Australia, we have been able to exceed our target for 2022-2023 with a total of 16 SkyHydrants sponsored.
Each Australian $5,000 sponsorship covers the cost of the delivering a SkyHydrant to the Philippines and a $1,000 grant for pipes and tanks.
Disaster Aid Australia are already looking for sponsors for 2023-2024.
Balay Mindanaw are also looking for Mindanao Rotary Clubs to act as ‘Installation Partners’
Celebrating the Energy Globe Award
During the launch DAA’s CEO Brian Ashworth took the opportunity to present Balay Mindanaw with copies of the Energy Globe certificates awarded to DAA for its ‘Safe Water for Every Child,Philippines’, program.
Brian was able to tell the audience that our success was only possible because of the commitment of the whole Balay Mindanaw organisation.
