Icelandic Water Holdings intends to send over 72,000 half-litre bottles of potable water to those displaced by flooding in Serbia.

72,576 bottles of water, valued at about 15 million ISK, will be going to help bring some relief to flood victims in Serbia, Vísir reports. Flooding in the region has in many cases destroyed homes, knocked out portions of the power grid, and destroyed water purification facilities.

“It is important to help in times of need,” Jón Ólafsson, the managing director of Icelandic Water Holdings, told reporters. “We can help by bringing thousands fresh and clean drinking water. It is the least we can do.”

As reported, Serbs living in Iceland have been collecting money for disaster relief in Serbia. It is believed that over 30,000 people have lost their homes in the flooding.

If you wish to help out in any way you can, you might want to check out the To Serbia With Love Facebook group, which can help coordinate donations to the region.
