Mobilink, Pakistan Navy initiate flood relief efforts in Balochistan
Karachi (Thursday, October 11, 2012) – Mobilink Pakistan, in continuation of its efforts to reach out to flood-affected areas across the country, has partnered with the Pakistan Navy to provide relief to flood victims in Balochistan. The Pakistan Navy will organise logistics, transportation and distribution, using both air and land transport.
This effort follows Mobilink’s initial phase of flood relief activation that had reached thousands of victims in southern Punjab.
Mobilink’s initial flood relief activity, organised in September, had focused on victims in the vicinity of Rojhan, DG Khan and Rajanpur. As a result of this quick and coordinated action, the Mobilink Foundation was the first to provide relief through supplies of food and water to nearly 12,000 flood-affected people in southern Punjab.
Mobilink is now working with the Pakistan Navy to initiate flood relief efforts to counter flood-related devastation in District Jaffarabad, which is one of the worst floods-affected with access to the area being hindered by standing flood water, inundated road infrastructure and a precarious security situation.
Mobilink Foundation, torchbearers, and Mobilink’s employee volunteer force, will be engaged for physical distribution of food and water supplies for over 14,000 people occupying temporary shelters in the area.
Mobilink Foundation, established in 2007, is a non-profit organisation, which provides support for the local community in the areas of health, education, environment and humanitarian assistance. (Press Release)
