According to the World Health Organization, arsenic contaminated water in Bangladesh is “the largest mass poisoning of a population in history”.

PurifAid is a program to install efficient, durable water decontamination systems to eliminate the toxins poisoning well water in rural Bangladesh. This technology has the potential to radically improve lives in Bangladeshi villages.

Drinking wells in Bangladesh are the main source of water for 90% of Bangladesh’s population. Tragically the rock and soil are naturally laden with arsenic – which contaminates the water supply to up to 77 million people.

Our initial project is the provision of immediate access to clean water to 30 families in the Golaidanga village, giving them a secure water supply for the next two and half decades. This pilot project contains the potential to scale up to a national level, providing a sustainable solution to this major humanitarian crisis.
