In addition to this the Company is also making efforts to arrange for water tanks and other life essentials for the displaced people.

This was announced by the Managing Director PSO Mr. Irfan K. Qureshi on Friday. Mr. Qureshi said that being the largest OMC in Pakistan, PSO will act as a conscientious corporate citizen in this hour of need. In the past PSO played an exemplary role during the Earthquake 2005 rescue operation and during other natural calamities. Company’s efforts in this regard were greatly appreciated in the country.

The corporate sector should come forward and play a role for relief of 1.5 million people who are going through a tough phase of life. At this point of time we should give complete support to the government. Mr. Qureshi added.
