The Dawood Foundation provides relief goods to Thar families

The Dawood Foundation has been actively providing relief goods to draught affected families in Thar for a month now. Almost 3 million rupees have been collected so far from individual and corporate donors to procure 1450 large ration packs containing sugar, rice, porridge, packaged milk, ORS, biscuits, bottled water and mosquito repellant. To date seven trucks have been sent to areas well away from the road which so far had not been aided by any organization. As these areas are accessible only via dirt tracks with deep loose sand, 4x4 wheel-drive trucks provided by Rangers personnel were used to reach the affected families. This relief effort is still underway at The Dawood Foundation and Dawood Public School; more trucks will be dispatched soon. Formed in 1961, The Dawood Foundation (TDF) is the philanthropic arm of the Dawood Hercules Group. For more information please visit http://www.dawoodhercules.com/csr_dawood-fdn.php
