Bestway raises funds to help flood-hit communities in Pakistan

Bestway Wholesale, whose family roots are firmly embedded in Pakistan, has announced immediate fundraising support for the victims of the floods that are continuing to devastate communities.

Dawood Pervez: ‘We want to do all we can to support the recovery efforts and help those that need help the most.’

Working with the Bestway Foundation, the wholesale arm is collecting funds through depot collections and The Foundation intends to work closely with world charities on the ground and deliver aid to those that need it the most through its support networks in Pakistan.

Bestway Group, the country’s leading foreign investor, has announced financial and material support to the people of Pakistan of US$1 million. The Group currently owns the United Bank Ltd (the second largest private bank in Pakistan) and Bestway Cement (the second largest cement manufacturer in Pakistan).

Bestway Wholesale MD Dawood Pervez, whose father Sir Anwar Pervez (founder and chairman of the Bestway Group) was born in Pakistan, commented: “We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of life and destruction that has been caused by this terrible flooding across Pakistan.

“As a company which has retained its heritage and links to Pakistan to this day, we want to do all we can to support the recovery efforts and help those that need help the most. We know how desperate the situation is right now before disease and further suffering sets in.

“The significant investment already made by Bestway Group allows us to actively provide immediate relief, and by working in partnership with local businesses and financial institutions we are putting in place long-term sustainable measures so that we can rehabilitate the masses affected by this national tragedy.

“We are now appealing to all our supply partners, friends, customers and colleagues to join with us and support this cause to help the people of Pakistan.”
