A total of PKR 1 billion has been donated by Jazz, in conjunction with its digital financial services JazzCash and sister company Mobilink Microfinance Bank, to the cause of providing desperately needed emergency supplies and, more importantly, telecommunications services to those affected by the floods.
Activities that are either short- or medium-term in nature and last for more than a year will make up the help.
Jazz will work directly with NGOs and the government as part of this rapid deployment to simplify the distribution of emergency goods like food, shelter, and medical equipment.
The relief effort also makes it simpler for Jazz consumers to specify the charities who will receive donations made through SMS and JazzCash. Jazz employees will also donate their time freely to aiding humanitarian causes across the nation.
Aamir Ibrahim, Chief Executive Officer of Jazz, said, “During this unprecedented time, while our thoughts and prayers are with the flood affected, we are also committed to ensuring connectivity to aid relief efforts.” In terms of providing emergency supplies, we are likewise committed to lending a helping hand to our fellow residents.
It is our obligation to respond to Pakistan’s time of need, and we will do all possible to help individuals whose lives have been adversely affected. “We will do everything in our power to restore the lives of those impacted.”
A substantial chunk of the funds will be concentrated on sustaining free and subsidized services for access to emergency care and rescue helplines because the connection is a lifeline in any disaster. This is due to the fact that connectivity is a lifeline in times of crisis.
The company has also expedited up the registration process for JazzCash mobile wallets to enable quick relief efforts by donors sending direct contributions to locals who have been most severely affected by the floods.
Jazz has led the charge in efforts to end every Pakistan crisis over the past 27 years. This pattern of the organization standing up to carry out its national duty is not altered by the most recent flood.
