One of the questions we regularly get asked is “How long do the filters last?”
Five years ago the partners; Disaster Aid Australia, Rotary Projects Timor Leste East, and The Rotary Club of Phillip Island and San Remo installed a SkyHydrant in the AHHA school in Dili.
Recently the school has had to relocate and the original SkyHydrant relocated with them.
The unit, which is maintained daily, is still producing enough safe drinking water for this very large school.
The head of the school tells us that the installation is so important to the school that on the days that the regular operator is away he undertakes the daily clean himself.
The school which has both day pupils and boarders concentrates on students from disadvantaged communities and aims to improve their future prospects.
To find out more about what Disaster Aid Australia is doing in Timor Leste, and other countries why not come along to our Annual Conference in Dandenong on 19th November.
