Petrofac Employees Support Pakistan Flood Victims
Petrofac, the international oil & gas facilities provider welcomed His Excellency, Mr Tariq Iqbal Soomro, Consul General of Pakistan in Dubai together with senior representatives from the Red Crescent, in Petrofac’s offices this week, to present a donation supporting the rehabilitation programme for victims of the recent floods in Pakistan.
Fadi Najjar, deputy managing director for Petrofac’s Engineering & Construction business commented: “Following our campaign to collect funds in the wake of this tragic event, I am delighted that our volunteering staff members, supported by a matched donation from Petrofac, have raised more than US$100,000. This has been further supplemented by an ongoing collection of unwanted clothing organised directly by our employees.
In the face of many natural disasters, Petrofac’s employee community has always been extremely proactive in responding. We have supported victims of the Haiti and Indonesia earthquakes and typhoons in the Philippines to name just a small number and on behalf of Petrofac I extend my sincerest gratitude to all our employees for their generosity.”
