Megagroup helps inhabitants of Kerala

28 August 2018

Earlier this month, the southern Indian state of Kerala endured its worst monsoon rain with heavy flooding. This caused a large drinking water shortage. Together with Rotary Club of Cochin Suburb Trust, MegaGroup has sent three water filtration units to the affected area to help the local residents with clean drinking water.

Since August 8 it has not stopped raining in the southern Indian state of Kerala. More than 800,000 people have fled the area and have found shelter in one of the 4,000 tent camps the authorities have organised. Until now the flooding - the worst in 100 years - has taken more than 350 lives.

The flooding has caused a large shortage in drinking water. Two trains filled with 1.5 million litres of drinking water have been sent to the affected area in the south-west of the country. Clean drinking water is a basic need and at MegaGroup we work together with people from Kerala. That is why this situation touches our hearts directly. Together with one of our suppliers and Rotary Club of Cochin Suburb Trust, we have sent three portable water filtration devices to Kerala. These units can produce up to 5,000 litres of clean drinking water per day and they don't need power. We hope these devices will help a large number of people in the suburbs of the area.

MegaGroup is the holding organisation of Bosta UK. Water technics is our passion and it is our mission to make water available to improve the lives of people. Our focus areas are water treatment, irrigation, geothermal and swimming pools.
