This project has been developed to reduce human suffering due to arsenic contamination of the groundwater in Bangladesh. In the 1970s, many wells were installed as a safe source of drinking water for the population. The danger of arsenic contamination was a problem not recognised at the time. The project tests water, subsidises water filters for communities as well as raising awareness of arsenic contamination amongst vulnerable people groups.
