APTMA to contribute donation for flood victims

Oct '12
All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) will contribute donation for the rehabilitation of flood affected victims in the areas of South Punjab and Sindh. The newly-elected APTMA management will call on the Governor Punjab Sardar Latif Khan Khosa at the Governor House on October 9 in this regard. 

Central Chairman APTMA, Ahsan Bashir, and Chairman APTMA Punjab Shahzad Ali Khan along with the other office bearers of APTMA management will also be present on the occasion.

Group leader APTMA Gohar Ejaz has said the plight of cotton farmers is awful and it is high time to extend them a helping hand. 
 
He said the APTMA takes it as a national responsibility to support the flood victims in general and the cotton farmers in particular by all ways and means to strengthen the economy.
 
According to him, the recent rains have played havoc with the residents of South Punjab and Sindh due to a flood like situation, killing 422 persons and damaging around 300,000 homes across the affected areas. In addition, the cotton, wheat and hay crops have been ruined heavily.
 
He has further added that the APTMA, under the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), has always been on the front to help out the government in dealing with the catastrophic situations like dengue attack, floods and earthquake. The APTMA members have been generous to such causes not only at the Association level but also at their individual levels, he asserted.
