Lahore, 11 October 2012: Mobilink, in continuation of its efforts to reach out to flood affected areas across Pakistan, has partnered with the Pakistan Navy to provide relief to flood victims in Baluchistan. 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, organized 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 South Punjab.
Mobilink is now working with the Pakistan Navy to initiate flood-relief efforts to counter flood related devastation in Baluchistan. District Jaffarabad 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 and Mobilink Torchbearers, 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. The Pakistan Navy will organize logistics, transportation and distribution, using both air and land transport.
The Mobilink Foundation is a reflection of the commitment of Mobilink and its employees to reshape lives of the community in which Mobilink operates. Established in 2007, the Mobilink Foundation is a non-profit organization, which provides support for the local community in the areas of health, education, environment and humanitarian assistance. Being a philanthropic organization, it is purely based on employee volunteerism that enables the Foundation to spend every penny directly towards the causes it is associated with.
