Aries Group is very happy and proud to be able to do such a service for the state. Both Aries Group and the cast and crew of Aickarakkonathe Bhishaguaranmaar were active in rescue and relief efforts during the floods in Kerala. They took up rescue efforts with the help of modern and lightweight rafts to get stranded residents to safety besides distributing relief materials including food, water and other necessary items. This is not the first time that we are offering a helping hand to the needy. We had been at the forefront of relief and rescue efforts following Nepal earthquake and Chennai floods in 2015. In Nepal, we could successfully built 200 homes besides relief and rescue works. In Chennai, we designated two teams of officials and staff for rescue and relief works. We have also donated the entire revenue from our first CSR movie to the homeless in Idukki and also distributed relief materials to the flood victims in Kuttanadu”, said Sohan Roy, Chairman and CEO of Aries Group.
