Our ‘Safe Water for Every Child’ project for the Philippines was one of more than 2,300 entries from 182 countries around the world.

 

In June 2018 year it was selected as the best project submitted from Australia.

 

A key issue in selection was the fact the SkyHydrant, that we install for the project can provide 10,000 litres per day of safe water without using electricity or chemicals.

 

In December 2018 Energy Globe announced that the 'Safe Water for Every Child' project was one of the 16 finalists invited to attend the Energy Globe World Award ceromony in Yazd, Iran, on the 29th January 2019.

With over 40% of the buildings either severely damaged or collapsed tens of thousands are going to be without homes and services for a long time.

Working with local support organisations they have been assisting those who can't be accommodated in the temporary Camps.

The team have trained workers of the Palu Water Board in the installation of SkyHydrants.

Disaster Aid Skyhydrants have been installed in the Kawatuna and Fatulela neighbourhood areas.
