35,000 Children Safe in Bhutan
 
Disaster Aid Australia’s (DAA) ambitious project to provide safe drinking water to 120 schools in Bhutan is now 50% complete. 
 
With an average of 600 children per school, this means that over 35,000 children are now protected from contaminated water. This is thanks to the great support DAA gets, especially from our home District of 9820.
 
If Rotarians want a personal experience of Delivering Safe Water in Bhutan, they can have a holiday in Bhutan and present a SkyHydrant to a school
 
Here Peter and Lois Faulkner are shown opening the SkyHydrant at a school.
 
The fully inclusive holiday costs From $6,450 (twin share) and includes the sponsorship of the SkyHydrant (You will receive a claimable tax receipt for $5,000)
