Muslim World League (MWL) has dispatched 20-trucks laden with a large number of staple food boxes and 7,000 blankets to the under-developed and cold areas of the country to facilitate the deserving people in harsh weather.
The initiative was taken under the ‘Winter Relief Package’, launched by the MWL (Rabita-e-Alam-e-Islami) to provide humanitarian assistance to under-privileged people of Pakistan.
Addressing the distribution ceremony of winter package, Minister for Religious Affairs and Inter-faith Harmony Sahibzada Noor-ul-Haq Qadri said the trucks were fully loaded with relief stuff amounting to millions of rupees that would help the poor to fight hunger amid biting cold.
He said whenever a calamity hit Pakistan, Saudi Arabia was always at the forefront to help its people.
Qadri said Rabita-e-Alam-e-Islami was a ray of hope for the deserving and downtrodden people, living across the globe.
Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan Nawaf bin Said Al-Malki, and officials of MWL were also present on the occasion.
