Siemens contributes to women handicraft centre

Karachi, February 13, 2013 (PPI-OT): Siemens Pakistan wrapped up its relief efforts for the 2010 and 2011 floods by donating an amount of Rs.0.4 million towards a women handicraft centre in District Sujawal, bringing the company’s total flood relief efforts for Pakistan to Rs.267.5 million, equivalent to EUR2.5 million.

The donation was handed over by Siemens Pakistan CEO Guenter Zwickl to Commander Jaffar of the Pakistan Navy, which established the handicraft center. Speaking on the occasion Mr. Zwickl said Siemens has a long association with Pakistan and is always ready to help when the company’s assistance is required. He said Siemens will continue to play its part as a good corporate citizen in the future.

The latest donation brings to an end the more than two-year-long effort by Siemens to help the people affected by the disastrous 2010 and 2011 floods. During these two years Siemens donated food hampers, set up a tent village, helped to reconstruct schools in the four provinces of Pakistan devastated by floods, donated diesel-generating sets, and installed water purification plants among other efforts.
