Our Mission / Objective

To provide, and assist in delivering water systems and relevant humanitarian aid to people affected by natural and other disasters.

Our Services

SMART AID

Responding to ‘Major Disasters’ by providing humanitarian aid to assist in recovery.

Disasters include: Typhoons, Earthquakes, Volcanic Eruptions, Tsunamis. 

Our main forms of aid are community sized safe water systems, and help with repairing and rebuilding homes.

Since 2019 we have also provided assistance to communities severely affected by COVID-19.

SAFE WATER for EVERY CHILD

We are responding to the disaster of hundreds of thousands of deaths annually due to drinking contaminated water.

We provide  water filter systems to communities, schools, and health facilities for $5,000.

Each system based on a ‘SkyHydrant’ ultra filtration unit that provides enough clean, bacteria free, water for a community of 700 people.

We also provide equipment and advice to help other humanitarian organisations provide safe drinking water.

Our Beneficiaries

Communities in developing countries in the Asia Pacific Region.
