The well construction project in Brazil, which has been supported by the GFF since January 2014, wins second place in the public category at the “Neptun Wasserpreis” (Neptune water award). Greenfinity also was present at the ceremony when Austrian Federal Minister Andrä Rupprechter awarded the best participants. With a donation of only 400 Euros up to 25 families in the drought-stricken state of Bahia can be provided with drinking water thanks to the project by the Styrian “Verein für Quellen und Hilfsprojekte” (Association for springs and aid projects).
The award was created in 1999 to emphasize the importance of the resource of water for life, the environment, the economy, art and society. Since then, the award has been presented every two years around the World Water Day on 22nd March.
