USAID, Coca-Cola Company sign MOU to support flood-affected communities


The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) hosted the “Building Back Better Conference” at the Serena Hotel Islamabad to bring together representatives from different private and public organizations to discuss ways in which the US-Pakistani diaspora and the private sector can be engaged for post-flood recovery, rehabilitation, and reconstruction.

During the event an MOU was signed between The Coca-Cola Company and USAID to create a humanitarian and social development impact in Pakistan by addressing the immediate, short, and long-term needs of the flood-affected population and social development causes in Pakistan.

Under the MOU, USAID will collaborate with The Company on flood response activities and use its convening power to create an enabling environment to address operational challenges. Additionally, USAID will facilitate contacts through its network of relationships with the local business and diaspora of Pakistani nationals abroad for identifying possible partnership opportunities.
