Land Rover aid for Pakistan relief fund
Dubai, August 30, 2010
Land Rover Menap will be donating six Land Rover Defender 110 station wagons to the Pakistan Red Crescent Society and six more to the Pakistan Army in order to help the disaster relief operation.
The vehicles will be used to deliver aid in the form of food, clean water, shelter and medical supplies to thousands of people in need in the most remote and cut-off communities.
Communities and crops have been devastated while much of the country’s infrastructure has been engulfed, damaged or destroyed by the flooding. Many roads and bridges have been badly damaged; leaving many areas cut off from normal transport links, said a statement.
The Land Rover Defender has a rich heritage in providing security, safety and rescue throughout its history and the partnership with the Pakistan Red Crescent Society and the Pakistan Army will ensure much needed supplies reach the remotest areas, it added.
“Our close links with the international federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies ensures that Land Rover Menap is able to respond effectively to tragedies,” said Robin Colgan, managing director, Jaguar Land Rover Menap (Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan).
“The Land Rover Defender 110 station wagon will allow supplies to reach the victims and it is a privilege to demonstrate our commitment the people of Pakistan,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
