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.

Value For Your Donation

With the end of the Tax Year and the Rotary Year coming quickly we would like to remind potential supporters of how Disaster Aid Australia continues to have a cost effective impact.

Delivery Through the Pandemic

Although the pandemic has made the delivery of international aid difficult, our network of trusted partners has meant we have continued to deliver.

The video below gives an appreciation of our activities.

How We Minimise Costs

The Rotary Club of Greater Dandenong and Endeavour Hills provides support to this club project by meeting the office rent, in addition to donating to our projects.

A very large part of the administration, marketing, and aid delivery work is carried out by volunteers with over 2,000 hours a year being donated to the organisation. (Only 0.6 full time equivalen paid staff)

We train local people in the countries where we work, which limits the amount of travel we have to fund.

We buy aid materials in country rather than pay high freight costs.

This means that the percentage of donations spent on aid is maximised.

The Results

We deliver ‘Safe Water for Every Child‘ for less than $1 /per person/year.

Our ‘SmartAid‘ provides enough materials for affected people to rebuild their homes for $1,000.
