Nestlé Pakistan has committed to donate 250,000 litres of clean drinking water and 10,000 litres of milk in the second phase to support vulnerable communities affected by the devastating floods, following the National Disaster Management Authority’s (NDMA) call for flood relief efforts across Pakistan.
Earlier this month, the company sent 60,000 litres of water to NDMA for flood relief efforts in Balochistan.
“Access to clean drinking water is the biggest concern for communities displaced by flooding across Pakistan,” said Samer Chedid, CEO of Nestlé Pakistan.
He went on to say that the company had asked its employees to make voluntary contributions to the affected communities. Nestlé Pakistan will match employee donations dollar for dollar.
Nestlé Pakistan will collaborate closely with national and provincial disaster management authorities to assist them in providing relief to people and communities affected by natural disasters.
The company is working tirelessly to ensure that consumers in Pakistan have access to much-needed food and beverage products. Nestlé cares deeply about people and the communities in which it operates, and it believes it can play an important role in times of crisis.
