Fiji - Cyclone Winston


Cyclone Winston has left more than 40 people confirmed dead, with some 14,000 people sheltering in 274 evacuation centres around Fiji.

The UN reports that hundreds of homes and many schools and vital infrastructure have been damaged or destroyed.

Disaster Aid International (Aust.) is working to provide desperately needed aid to Fijians after the cyclone’s horrendous devastation. That includes liaising with our Rotary contacts and agencies in that country. Aid groups and government authorities are now racing to deal with a critical need for clean water, health supplies and emergency accommodation.

Your donation will help Disaster Aid International (Aust.) respond with Family Survival Packs, Home Repair Kits and, most importantly SkyHydrant™ water purification systems and Sawyer water filters.

We hear from the United Nations about our work in Sudan

DAA-News-Update-UN-Sudan-0001We have delivered aid into Sudan over recent years to provide some assistance during the longstanding and bloody conflict between North and South Sudan that has affected countless people. Our Family Survival Packs, with our own tents were prominent in those deliveries.
This month, we were pleasantly surprised, and extremely pleased to receive an email and photographs from an aid worker with the United Nations (Peacekeeping Operations). For security reasons that person has asked that we do not use their name. The email read:
“This is just a random email - I saw your tents in the disputed border zone between Sudan and South Sudan while doing an inter-agency assessment and decided to take a few snapshots for you to see that they are being used. Saw them in a village called Miyadol where people who were displaced during the conflict are coming back.”
Kind regards – (name withheld)
