Talking to media at a local hotel in Karachi, Sulayem said the company will announce the exact amount it would donate in due course, adding that DP World, which specialises in cargo logistics, port terminal operations, maritime services and free trade zones, will be working in cooperation with the Pakistan Army to conduct relief work.

“More countries should come forward too to support Pakistan come out of this crisis,” he said, noting that the full impact of the devastation caused by rains and floods cannot be gauged by just media reports.
