NBP Press Release Diamer Basha and Mohmand Dam Fund 2018 Employees of National Bank donate One-Day Salary

Lahore (Muhammad Yasir) The employees of National Bank of Pakistan on the persuation of Saeed Ahmad, President, National Bank of Pakistan have decided voluntarily to contribute one day salary for the construction of ‘Diamer Basha and Mohmand Dam Fund 2018.’ This nationally important decision has been taken keeping in view the demerging acute shortage of water which poses an alarming threat for the country, which has been rightly observed by the honorable Supreme Court of Pakistan. In response to the Government of Pakistan, to mobilize funds through donations/contributions by both the domestic and international donors, an account with the name of “Diamer Basha and Mohmand Dam Fund-2018” has been established at all the branches of National Bank of Pakistan. Pakistan has always been a country blessed with rivers and rainfall, but in the view of the experts, there is going to be a massive water shortage as a large portion of the river water that passes through the country empties itself into the sea and the country loses out on power and irrigation opportunities. In his message to Saeed Ahmad said that that the management of NBP has expects field functionaries to welcome, receive and facilitate all persons desirous of making deposits and contributions in the said account.
