Parama Anandan runs the Foundation for Research and Sustainable Development (FRSD) in Tamilnadu, India. FRSD promotes ancient wisdom, traditional knowledge and indigenous medical practices. One focus area is documenting and promoting cost-effective, traditional and nature-based water purification systems. FRSD helps communities source and utilize locally-available medicinal plants, seeds and tubers that cleanse water while retaining its natural benefits. This work has the potential to save millions of people from waterborne diseases.
