Over the past decade, the world, in general, and Pakistan specifically, witnessed several natural calamities, whereby millions of people have suffered immeasurable loss of life, livelihood and livestock. Pakistan has been struck by two major earthquakes, several floods and a drought that have left huge populations displaced and debilitated, exposed to the elements.
In addition to this, millions have had to abandon their hearth and home due to terrorism that has swept through the country. These disasters have required the government, international humanitarian organisations, the Pakistan army and citizens of the country to work together to provide some relief, respite and rehabilitation to the affectees.
The Dawood Foundation has, during this time, been active in distributing relief goods to the affected populations. Funds were collected, relief goods procured and, with the help of the army, distributed to those in need. Volunteers from the associated companies of the Dawood Hercules Group, along with students of the school, have worked together to prepare relief packages for their fellow nationals. Special assistance and support focused on the malnutrited women and children has also been provided.
