JS Bank holds medical camps and food distribution in flood affected areas

KARACHI – JS Bank, one of Pakistan’s fastest-growing Banks, has set up mobile clinics and daily food ration distribution drives catering to thousands of people in flood-impacted areas.

Activities are taking place in Districts Jamshoro (Sehwan), Dadu & Larkana along with surrounding areas. These include villages, Mirzapur, Bubak Band Manchar, Arazi, Warrah, Lakki Shah Saddar, Kai, Bago Sher, Nawab Khan Rind, and Hajji Khan Noohani amongst others.

Basir Shamsie – President & CEO, JS Bank personally visited the camps, along with senior team members to review the efforts of the JS Flood Relief team, which has been working on the ground. Speaking at the location, he said, “JS Bank is committed to giving back to the community in which it operates and is actively making efforts to ease the difficulties of the affectees, as it had done in the 2010 floods. We are standing by the nation and will continue to do in times to come.”

“We are focusing our efforts on hard-to-reach villages in the area to provide relief to those who are in the worst impacted conditions,” said Jamil Memon.
