100% Aid Delivered In 2020-2021

In the financial year, which has just closed, Disaster Aid Australia delivered $240,661 in international aid to developing countries.

This was slightly over our annual income for the year of $239,144 (which was down approximately 30% from our pre COVID income).

The result is due to the DAA Board deciding in June 2020 that the COVID 19 Pandemic was a ‘Disaster‘ and many of the developing countries, which we help, would be hit harder than Australia.

Accordingly a considerable portion of the financial reserves that enable us to respond to disasters has been used over the past 12 months.

This 3 minute video shows photographs of the many aid projects we have assisted in the last 12 months.

With the pandemic travel restrictions we have only been able to deliver this aid due to the strong partnerships we have built up since DAA was founded in 2010.

Our Philippine partner Balay Mindanaw was also able to build links with the following Rotary Clubs during the Typhoon Goni response: RC of Pasig, RC of Legaspi North, and RC of West Cagayan de Oro.

We also wish to thank: Rotary Clubs, individuals, and companies around Australia for their continuing support of DAA in what has been a difficult year.

Thanks To Rotary Clubs

Disaster Aid Australia is only able to continue delivering aid thanks to the dedication of Rotarians around Australia.

To show the effort that many clubs go to raise funds we are featuring the Rotary Club of Dromana

The Club, located on the Mornington Peninsua in Victoria, runs a monthly community market.

Every month their stand features DAA and our SkyHydrant Projects.

Dromana is just one of many clubs that help us by seeking donations, and/or providing a grant from their fundraising activities.

Our founding Rotary Club of Greater Dandenong and Endeavour Hills pays our office rent, which means that more money from outside donations can go to aid

Next time you contribute to a fundraiser, or buy a sausage at Bunnings you might be helping DAA deliver Safe Water for Every Child or SmartAid following a disaster, or the COVID pandemic.

Clear Streams Are Not Safe

One of the questions we sometimes get asked about our Bhutan project is “There must be lots of clear mountain streams in Bhutan, so why do they need SkyHydrants?”

It’s true that the majority of schools do get their water from clear mountain streams but that doesnt mean there isn’t harmful bacteria!

The below official testing report provides the evidence of the need, from Lhuentse school following our installation on 3rd December.

CFU stands for  Colony-Forming Units, a measure of the number of viable bacteria cells in a sample.

Now the water supply to 468 students and staff of the schools has improved from being an ‘Intermediate to High Health Risk’ to being classified as ‘Safe’

If you would like to sponsor safe water for a school in Bhutan contact Disaster Aid Australia at: admin@disasteraidaustralia.org.au
