LAHORE (PR) - It was most heart-wrenching to note the plight of helpless Pakistani brethren of Awaraan devastated by the massive earthquake. May Allah forgive our sins and rest the departed souls in eternal peace. We as Pakistani citizens must come together as one nation to extend a helping hand to our own countrymen in their hour of need as it is not only our moral duty as human beings but is also one that has been impressed upon us by our faith.

Nishat Group and all its business concerns felt the pain of their Awaraan brethren and wanted to help them in any way possible. However, due to remote location of Awaraan and the overall security situation prevalent in Balochistan, our socially responsible teams could not visit the area and assist the people personally. Therefore it was unanimously decided by all group concerns to donate generously to the “Prime Minister’s Earthquake Relief Fund 2013 for Balochistan”.

I am happy to bring to your notice that the following initial donations were made by Nishat Group concerns in October 2013 immediately upon receipt of your subject appeal: MCB Bank Rs5,000,000, Nishat Mills Rs2,500,000, DG Khan Cement Rs2,500,000, further donations were made in November 2013 with the below given break-up: MCB Bank Rs 25,000,000, Adamjee Insurance Rs5,000,000, Nishat Chunian Power Rs5,000,000, Nishat Power Rs2,500,000, Security General Insurance Rs2,500,000, It is hoped that this humble contribution of Rs 50,000,000 by the management and staff of Nishat Group and its above-noted concerns, will help the displaced Pakistanis of earthquake struck Balochi area.
