The Big Give
This week is the Big Give Christmas Challenge where all donations provided to Groundwater Relief through this link are doubled: https://donate.thebiggive.org.uk/campaign/a051r00001Ok9ciAAB
We are seeking to raise £4000 to help purchase geophysical equipment for our Rapid Response Unit. This equipment helps us to look underground and identify good locations to drill water supply boreholes.

This fundraising campaign is for 1 week only (starting 3rd December) so please don't delay!
Groundwater has a critical role to play in the battle to eradicate poverty. Discounting glaciers and ice caps, groundwater makes up 99% of the available fresh water on the planet. Groundwater often provides a reliable and good quality source of water filtered and treated by the soil and rock.
However because groundwater is stored within rock and sediments, it is also more difficult to access, understand and manage sustainably. A lack of expertise leads to poorly designed and constructed water points and environmental damage with the longer term results of non-functioning infrastructure and broken promises.
Groundwater Relief, through a membership of over 260 groundwater experts, provides technical support to charities and water providers at key points in a project.
We find the right people to develop groundwater resources professionally and sustainably, whilst building the capacity of local professionals, companies and institutions.
