LONDON: Leading property British Pakistani businessman Zeeshan Shah has started an initiative to provide hundreds of ration packs which include three months essential supplies including rice, flour, wheat, lentils, ghee and tea in Gwadar.
The distribution of ration packs commenced earlier this week with International Port City acting as the distribution centre. The volunteers will be going door to door distrusting the ration packs to those who didn’t have the means of transport to come to us.
Speaking to The News, Zeeshan Shah said: "We would like to thank DG Gwadar Development Authority Shazeb Kakar, the Gwadar Chamber of Commerce for their ongoing support and the Pakistan Armed Forces for their ongoing support. "As a responsible organisation involved in the cohesive development of Pakistan, we are here to assist all institutions across the country regardless of geographic location."
The officials in Gwadar had requested protective masks from CPIC. Shah said he will donate over 50,000 masks to doctors, medical professionals and others in the city in order to combat the viral outbreak of COVID-19.
Balochistan has seen 465 cases so far out of which 161 people have recovered. 6 people have lost their lives to the viral disease. Balochistan constitutes more than 50% of Pakistan's landmass but is extremely impoverished with minimum health facilities.
Gwadar is considered to be a game-changer not only for Pakistan but for the entire region and the world at large due to its strategic location. Gwadar Smart City Integrated Plan also shows how the city will embrace a futuristic vision and evolve to become one of the trade hubs of South Asia.
