Bahrain Financing Company (BFC), the Kingdom’s oldest and most recognised money transfer and foreign exchange group, today announced that it has set up a Pakistan Relief Fund to help alleviate the sufferings of flood victims in Pakistan. The announcement comes in response to Pakistan’s catastrophic devastation caused due to heavy floods that have left millions in need of emergency assistance.
BFC has reaffirmed its support for the ongoing humanitarian assistance by setting up the Pakistan Relief Fund with an initial sum donated by BFC. The fund, which is active from now until the end of the year, is open to BFC customers, employees and anyone who wishes to contribute to this noble cause. At the end of every month, BFC will donate the contributed amount to the Bahrain Red Crescent Society to ensure that effective and accountable financial aid reaches those affected.
The fund will allow everyone who wishes to donate, to contribute any amount to the fund at any of BFC’s conveniently located shops in Bahrain.
Ebrahim Nonoo, Managing Director and CEO of BFC said, “Our thoughts are with everyone who is affected by the worst catastrophe in Pakistan in decades.
