Pakistan: Recently, Samsung Electronics has initiated a new charitable project in Pakistan to supply houses and electronic appliances for the flood affected people.
Samsung offered the funding to IDF – an international NGO, which is building houses for the dispossessed flood victims, in a ceremony held in the Rangpur city near southern Multan region, with the association of the United Nations Organization.
A special ceremony was prepared by IDF on 10th September, 2011 in Rangpur, where Samsung declared its support for IDF to build new eco-friendly houses (2 houses for flood affected families). Samsung Pakistan’s Senior Manager Mr. H.D. Lee personally attended the ceremony and met the affected families to share their grief.
On this occasion Mr. H.D. Lee mentioned that,
“Samsung is committed to help the flood victims in regaining their healthy lifestyle and getting safe and strong homes as shelters for their families. We are concerned about the poor living conditions of the flood victims all over Pakistan and we are striving to help in quick rehabilitation of these fellow brethren. Samsung will soon be handing over more relief homes and other relief goods in numerous flood affected areas of Pakistan.”
In this first phase of the scheme, Samsung has offered the sum for construction of 1 house and appliances for 2 houses. These appliances incorporated a Samsung Television, Refrigerator and Microwave Oven for every house.
