The contribution comes after days after Hussain Dawood, on behalf of Engro Corporation and Dawood Hercules Group, pledged Rs1 billion to reduce the spread and impact of the COVID-19 crisis. He welcomed the efforts of the government and other organizations that have stepped up to this challenge.
Last week, Pakistan telecom operator Jazz announced to have pledged Rs1.2 billion towards combating against COVID-19. As per a statement issued by the company on Wednesday, Jazz said that it will provide support to leading welfare organizations across Pakistan.
The initiatives include COVID-19 tests, ventilators, and food rations to be given to the impoverished class. The relief response also facilitates Jazz customers to direct their charitable donations via SMS and JazzCash. The company's employees will also be voluntarily contributing up to 3-days salary to the nationwide relief effort.
