Mariah Valdehueza, a Filipino public health student at the Australian Catholic College (ACU), has had first hand experience in delivering aid in conjunction with Disaster Aid Australia.
With her public health background Mariah has also been closely involved in public health education in the Philippinnes both with Balay Mindanaw and other Aid Organisations.
In 2013 as an intern with our partner Balay Mindanaw she was part of quick response team led and supported by Disaster Aid Australia, went to Bohol to provide temporary shelters for families after an Earthquake.
During the Marawi Siege in 2017 she was involved in the provision of Safe Drinking Water Using Disaster Aid SkyHydrants
As we are talking to people at the Hamburg Rotary Convention some of the questions are:
How can our club help people with Safe Water?
Do we have to be an Australian Club to get Involved?
How much will it cost?
How long will the project take?
How many people can helped by a SkyHydrant installation?
Is the Disaster Aid Australia project sustainable?
By sponsoring a Disaster Aid Australia your club have a sponsored SkyHydrant installed at a school or community in your name in either Bhutan, or the Philippines.
Disaster Aid Australia is willing to partner with any Rotary Club, or Individual, wherever they are located.
We normally quote the cost as 5,000 Australian dollars but we will accept donations in other currencies such as 3,100 Euros or 3,500 US dollars.
We can complete the installation of a SkyHydrant in 3 -4 Months. We already have partners in Bhutan and the Philippines who have identified and assessed schools and communities who need clean water. The partners have people trained in installation and Hygiene training. Installation in new countries or outside our partners area of operation can take a little longer.
A SkyHydrant will protect a community of over 500 people or a school with over 1,000 pupils.
In 2018 our “Safe Water For Every Child’ Program was rated as an example of ” Worlds Best Practice’ in Sustainable Drinking Water by the Energy Globe organisation.

Disaster Aid Australia by providing Skyhydrants is proud to be helping Balay Mindanaw pursue its mission of:
Helping build empowered sustainable communities; and
Helping build peace in Mindanao.
With the Skyhydrants providing safe water to communities at minimal cost.
At their meeting of 5th May the Board of Disaster Aid Australia have agreed to supply a further 10 Skyhydrants to Balay Mindanaw this year, together with a grant for the purchase of tanks, pipes and fittings for the installations.
