Bestway begins fundraising for Pakistan floods

Bestway Wholesale has begun immediate fundraising support for the victims of the devastating floods in Pakistan that are continuing to batter towns and cities.

The wholesaler has roots firmly in the country and is working with the Bestway Foundation by collecting funds through depot collections and JustGiving.com.  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$1m. The Group currently owns the United Bank Limited (the 2nd largest private bank in Pakistan) and Bestway Cement (the 2nd largest cement manufacturer in Pakistan).

Speaking of the disaster, Dawood Pervez, managing director for Bestway Wholesale – whose father Sir Anwar Pervez (Founder and Chairman of the Bestway Group), was born in Pakistan, says: “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.

“With the significant investment already been 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 effected by this national tragedy”.
