Solving ‘The Christmas Present’

Often people don’t know what to buy for Christmas presents!

Every year forgetable Christmas presents are delivered . . . and never see the light of day again.

The Alternative

This Christmas why not do something different this year and ask someone to share with you the gift of safe water to someone in a developing country?

Send your friends and relatives this link:


They can make a donation in your name and help provide safe drinking water for a community or school, in a developing country.

Every $1 donated provides safe water for one person for a year.

Disaster Aid Australia will:

  • Provide a ‘Deductable Gift Tax Receipt’ to the donor.
  • Send a Thank You E-mail to the recipient noting the gift made in their name.
  • For gifts of $50 or more we will additionally post a personalised card to the recipient, recording the donation.

We also provide an option for you to receive our quarterly newsletter, so you can see our safe water projects delivered.

Every dollar makes a difference

Meet Disaster Aid Australia

As Australia starts to open up Rotary, and other service clubs, are moving back to face to face meetings.

If your club is looking for a Guest Speaker or a ‘Vocational Visit’ why not contact Disaster Aid Australia?

Guest Speakers

Ted Burton in Tasmania

Over the past few weeks our ‘Champions’ have delivered presentations in Queensland, Victoria, and Tasmania.

Our speakers can:

  • Explain how Disaster Aid Australia delivers safe water for less than $1/person/year.
  • Keep you informed about how we have continued to deliver aid through the COVID pandemic.
  • Let you know about new opportunities to sponsor Safe Water for Every Child installations.
  • Tell you how we keep our costs low, so each donation delivers more aid.

Vocational Visits

Demonstrating a Working SkyHydrant

By the end of November we will again be open for ‘Vocational Visits’ at our office, near Dandenong.

This will give you the opportunity to see a working SkyHydrant and find out much more about how DAA delivers aid.

We provide an informative tour and a 2 course meal for $20.

ZOOM Remains An Option

For those who are too far from our Office or Champions homes we will be continuing to Offer ZOOM presentations.

These can be either:

  • A slide show based presentation with a short video.
  • A hosted virtual tour of the Office.

In either case there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

Contact us at for more information.


This week Nations are meeting in Glasgow to discuss action on ‘Climate Change’.

Thats fine for first world countries, with technology changes they can preserve their current living standards while reducing their reliance on fossil fuels.

It’s Different for Developing Countries

Simply restricting their use of fossil fuels could mean their living conditions will never improve.

With 80% of illness in the developing world being related to contaminated water, safe drinking water is a key issue in improving living standards.

DAA’s Help

Our Safe Water for Every Child project is a solution that improves health in developing countries without increasing the use of fossil fuels.

The SkyHydrants we use have been able to deliver safe drinking water to well over 100,000 in the last few years without the use of electrical power.

This has been recognised by the Energy Globe Foundation, who recognise the worlds major sustainability champions.
