WaterHealth International, Inc. (WHI) announced ICICI Bank's funding commitment for WHI's development of community water facilities in rural India. In the initial tranche of funding, ICICI Bank committed 40 million rupees (approximately US $865,000) to WaterHealth India Pvt. Ltd., WHI's subsidiary, in a commercial loan facility.

"Providing clean and safe water in underserved areas of the world in a sustainable way is an unparalleled challenge in the fight against waterborne diseases," said WHI CEO Dr. Tralance Addy. "WaterHealth International offers an affordable commercial solution to this problem, and we are pleased that ICICI Bank embraces our business model and has decided to support our expanding efforts in India."

"WaterHealth International has devised a business solution for providing the poorest communities with clean water," said Nachiket Mor, ICICI Bank Deputy Managing Director. "ICICI Bank is pleased to finance this initiative, which we believe can be commercially successful while providing clean water at affordable prices in rural India."
