 Safe Water for Every Child – Myanmar

The speaker will update us on  our recently completed project: 

The installation of a Disasteraid Skyhydrant: providing safe clean water to a remote village in Myanmar near the border with Thailand. 

This project idea started with our road trip to Nhill, after John Millington, from Rotary Nhill, addressed our Club and told us about the Karen people and the story of the hardship they had faced and their successful settling into the Nhill community.
