The projects aims to to provide clean water to communities across the Philippines in an effective and long term sustainable manner. The method of ensuring clean water is to install community Sky Hydrants™, which are low pressure
ultra-filtration filters. These remove bacteria from the water without the need for electrical power or chemicals.
Disaster Aid Australia responded to work on the ‘Typhoon Haiyan’ recovery in the Philippines in 2013. It became apparent to Disaster Aid Australia that many of the communities had never had safe water, which was an ongoing disaster.
In looking for a sustainable long-term solution, we determined that the Sky Hydrant™ system available through the Sky Juice Foundation would provide a long-term solution to small communities across the Philippines. The system can operate without electrical power. Minimal use of chemicals – chemicals are only used in very small quantities for weekly cleaning, not treatment.
The Sky Hydrants™ provided by the Sky Juice foundation are an extremely innovative device. The Sky Hydrant™ can provide drinking quality water from many natural sources without the use of power and chemicals. The engagement and training of the local organization Balay Mindanaw has enabled the local people to become a massive resource.
