posted on 17/10/2010: 707 views



Pakistani pop-rock group Strings, official brand ambassadors for Eithad Airways in Pakistan, has distributed over 500 gift packs to displaced children living in the Sajawal relief camp in Pakistan, in collaboration with Emirates International Mobile Humanitarian Hospital for Children (EIMHH).

Faisal Kapadia, one of the Strings duo, said: "This was an important opportunity to bring a smile to children's faces and remind them that we care. "We were pleased to join Etihad and Emirates International Mobile Humanitarian Hospital on this special trip to showcase that everyone can do their part to help these families. Many of the affected people lived off the land, so they are now left with absolutely nothing. Choosing to sit idly by and watch their suffering is not an option." Etihad Airways Country Manager in Pakistan, Amer Khan, joined Strings and EIMHH in their visit to the displaced families residing in the Sajwal relief camp, distributing gift packs and assisting the medical staff of EIMHH tend to child patients.

Khan said: "Etihad recognises the difficulties these children and their families are faced with, and we hope the gifts we distributed have helped to raise their spirits." Etihad is currently working with EIMHH to assist the hospital in transferring medical supplies to Pakistan through Etihad Crystal Cargo. The airline has also been working closely with the Pakistan authorities to transfer medical supplies and humanitarian aid to the country. Etihad recently launched its inaugural flight of its A330-200 freighter aircraft to Pakistan, filled with relief supplies.

Dr Adel Al Shamry, Chief Executive of EMIMH, said: "I am delighted to work with Etihad on the recent visits to the relief camps in Pakistan.

"This trip will educate the public and increase awareness of the situation here, which is dire. I look forward to working closely with Etihad to ensure that both our organisations from the UAE are doing all they can to help the misplaced flood victims in Pakistan." The EMIMH continues to support the flood victims with its focus on the prevention and treatment of children diseases. The mobile, elaborate medical facility travels through the Sindh region offering free medical care, ICU, diagnostics, pharmacy and other services by engaging Doctors and staff from Canada, France, UAE and Pakistan, Syria and the Philippines. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
