KSB donates tens of thousands of euros for flood victims in Pakistan

Employees of KSB have been raising funds to help with relief efforts in Pakistan after the heavy monsoon rains caused flooding, landslides and flash floods.

At least 33 million people – one in seven Pakistanis – are affected, and already a third of the country is under water.

Almost one million houses have been destroyed or severely damaged, road networks have been damaged and food supplies have been disrupted as a result.

“We are dismayed by the situation in Pakistan and what is currently happening to the people there,” says Stephan Timmermann, spokesman for the KSB Board of Management. “KSB has had business relations with this country since 1953 and so we have close ties with the Pakistani people.”

Employees of the Pakistani subsidiary KSB Pumps Company Limited alone are raising 10,000 euros. KSB Pakistan and KSB SE & Co. KGaA are adding to this amount.

The total of 40,000 euros will be used for food, medicine, various emergency relief supplies and to rebuild the collapsed infrastructure.

In addition, KSB Pakistan is supplying two water treatment plants and dewatering pumps to the affected areas.
