Students at Marian Catholic College's community action team have enlisted the help of Griffith Air Force Cadets to help deliver clean water for the drought stricken residents of Louth.
Being almost entirely reliant on the Darling River for their tap water, Louth residents have been struggling to find adequate drinking water this year.
Students at Marian College became interested in raising water for the town after learning that residents there are now forced to rely on store-bought drinking water.
Action group vice president Imreet Singh and fellow fellow student Joseph Neheme are both in year 10 at Marian College and members of the Air Force Cadets.
The two decided to enlist the help of their brigade in the project which saw a total of $450 raised through cake sales and a raffle securing 1,200 liters of bottled water for the town.
"It was quite smooth, the only hard part was getting everyone to bring the water in on time," Imreet said.
"We got it all together and sent it off to Louth, we had a student here who knew people from Louth who organised transport, we are hoping to do it again."
After school Imreet Singh said he plans to pursue a career in medicine, while Joseph said he is considering joining the Air Force saying he enjoyed the fundraising and how much it resembled the ADF's foreign-aid work.
