Pakistan (Muhammad Yasir)
Shan Shares, the corporate identity of Shan Foods committed to promoting sustainability, inaugurated a recreational park in Landhi, Karachi in partnership with Ismail Foundation, a not-for-profit organization and the CSR wing of Ismail Industries Limited that works for the development and improvement of the society.
The park is constructed under WASL (Water and Sanitation Logistics), the flagship water project of the Ismail Foundation, in collaboration with Shan Shares which will also be overlooking the maintenance of the park. Being an industrial municipality, air and water pollution in the region is one of the biggest nuisances for the residents of Landhi. The newly constructed park in the area will not only serve as a scenic and recreational spot for the locals but will also help in bringing positive changes to their health and wellbeing by being a source of clean and fresh air in the area.
Speaking during the inauguration of this green initiative, Sammer Sultan, Co-chairwoman of Shan Foods, said, “Shan Shares is very passionate about uplifting the society and the environment in every way possible. Encouraging vegetation and greenery throughout the city is the need of the hour and we should all come together to appreciate and become a part of such initiatives.”
Hamid Ismail, CEO & Executive Director Ismail Industries Limited, while appreciating Shan Shares’ cooperation in the project said, “Given the recent climate changes all across Pakistan and in Karachi, green and eco-centric initiatives have become a necessity. We hope that through this project, the area and the residents would be able to reap some environmental benefits.”
