Alkhidmat Karachi has received a fumigation machine and chemicals donated by Jaffer Brothers Pvt.

Speaking on the occasion, Fareed Haroon Jaffer said that Pakistan was facing a dual crisis in the shape of the devastating floods as well as the spread of deadly diseases like dengue. He praised Alkhidmat’s initiative of conducting a fumigation drive before and after the floods which had led to the decision of donating the fumigation machine and chemicals to Alkhidmat. He added that Jaffer Brothers was supporting Alkhidmat in its relief and rehabilitation operations and would continue to do so. Sabir Zaidi said that dengue had assumed dangerous proportions in the country and hospitals were full of patients.

Thanking Jaffer Brothers for its noble gesture of generosity and trust towards Alkhidmat, Naveed Ali Baig said that the spray campaign that Alkhidmat was conducting all over Karachi was its legacy.
