FRANK Water Project Update

28 February 2014

We're very pleased to have received the first update from FRANK Water, detailing the amazing work they're doing funded by our Sound Library, Water.

The funds raised so far from purchases of the Water Sound Library have been allocated to a project in the village of Pedda Lingareddypalli in the state of Andhra Pradesh in South East India.

An estimated 62 million people throughout India are affected with fluorosis, a condition which affects the central nervous system, bones and joints. All but six districts of Andhra Pradesh are affected by flouride contamination.

Working alongside local Non-Government Organisation, Bala Vikasa, the project in Pedda Lingareddypalli uses multi filtration technology to remove both chemical and biological contaminants from the water.

In addition to the technological aspect, the project also seeks to improve local understanding of the links between water-related disease and the consumption of contaminated drinking water, as well as ensuring that projects can eventually be self-financing and community owned in the long term.

The project was inaugurated on the 28th December 2013 and now the whole village is now benefitting from clean water.

Once again, we'd like to thank everyone who has so far purchased the Water Sound Library and whose contributions continue to fund such great work. 50% of every purchase of the Water Sound Library, continues to be donated to FRANK Water, helping fund sustainable clean water projects in developing countries.
