Pakistan telecom industry’s CSR frontrunner, Zong 4G, has extended support to Naureen Zindagi Welfare Trust (NZWT), an orphanage in Islamabad amid the coronavirus pandemic. The initiative is a part of Zong 4G’s commitment to empowering Pakistan and giving back to society, especially the marginalized communities.
Naureen Zindagi Welfare Trust is an orphanage for children in Islamabad’s Ghauri Town. NZWT has also started work on establishing a school for children with hearing and speech impairment in Islamabad. As part of the initiative, Zong 4G visited the orphans at NZWT and provided them with furniture along with school uniforms and winter clothing.
The New Hope Volunteers of Zong 4G also spent time with children and organized an awareness session on Covid-19 with free health check-ups by qualified doctors.
“Our support for the Naureen Zindagi Welfare Trust is a reflection of our commitment to the Pakistani society and its people,” said Zong 4G’s official spokesperson. “Organizations like NZWT face multifarious challenges and as a consequence of Covid-19, these challenges have increased multifold. As a responsible organization, Zong 4G recognizes the need to support the underprivileged strata of the society and will continue working towards its goal of an inclusive society.”
“We strongly believe that all the children have the right to a better life and education, irrespective of their background,” said Naureen Shahid, NZWT. “We thank Zong for their kind support to the NZWT kids during these difficult times. We encourage others too to make organizations like ours a part of their CSR programs.”
Besides being a leading connectivity partner for Pakistanis, Zong 4G also leads corporate social responsibility, and support to NZWT is a testament to that commitment. The company also extended support to the SOS Children’s Village and Bint-e-Fatima Old Home in Karachi amid the urban flood crisis in the recent past. Zong’s proactive Covid-19 response has also been highly effective and helpful for Pakistanis.
