In his message Ali Murtaza Abbas, MOL Group Regional Vice President for Middle East, Africa, and Pakistan said, “MOL Pakistan operates in some of the most rural and remotest parts of the country, where we appreciate sports and games as a means of cultural conservation and to promote the spirit of sports, inclusivity, and a healthy lifestyle in our local communities. However, due to very limited sport facilities and equipment, recreational activities and sports are not always available and accessible. Therefore, at the request of our local communities, especially our youth, MOL Pakistan regularly sponsors and organizes community sports galas through our corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.”
