WaterHealth to offer drinking water

Our Bureau

Hyderabad, Oct. 10

WaterHealth International Inc (WHI), through its India arm, is planning to offer safe and affordable drinking water to rural communities, using a model that included water purification technology.

Announcing this here on Tuesday, Dr Tralance Addy, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of WHI, said ICICI Bank had announced a Rs 4-crore loan to part finance the projects in the rural areas.

The rural communities would have to pay a fee, less than Rs 90 a person in a year, to get access to the purified water. The WaterHealth Centres, owned by the communities, would purify the water and deliver it to the people.
