UPDATE as of 25.11.2020: 1 Sky Hydrant Max has arrived in Albania to RC Durres. Installation training will take place via zoom in the next week or so. Our Trustee Stuart Amesbury will travel to Albania in early January to assist in installation, as at present due to lockdown (Covid 19), no installation can take place at the facility (new University buildings in Durres).
Disaster Aid Europe z.s, a project of Rotary Club Prague International, focuses on helping rebuild communities after disasters and is a member of Disaster Aid International a global Rotary initiative. On 11th May 2020, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between Rotary Club Durres and Disaster Aid Europe. In this project, Disaster Aid Europe will assist Rotary Club Durres, Albania to help and support the rebuilding of communities severely affected by the 26th November 2019 earthquake (epicentre 20 km from Durres). The proceeds from our fundraising will go towards supporting children – repairing a kindergarten facility – and providing help to elderly and disabled groups. Our initial project is to install a clean water filtration system, the Sky Hydrant Max*, to provide water for drinking and hygiene, so key after the earthquake and now during the COVID-19 pandemic.
