The donor and Embassy representatives briefed media at the end of the ceremony.
Speaking on the occasion, Ambassador Mr. Imtiaz Ahmad thanked the donor on the behalf of Government of Pakistan while recalling the generosity shown earlier by Mr. Asad ten years ago when Pakistan faced devastation by floods. He also mentioned that at a time when the whole world is seeking such medical equipments and their prices are skyrocketing in open market, kindness of Mr. Asad is exemplary depicting his true love for Pakistan and Pakistani people.
In his message to the expatriate Pakistani community worldwide, the Ambassador further reiterated the need for self-safety first – encouraging the community to follow local instructions and all necessary precautions, and then contributing towards their homeland in whatever way possible.
The donated medical equipment is being shipped as a full container for Pakistan consigned to National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) – the national focal agency to fight corona virus in Pakistan.
