THE POWERCHINA representative office in Pakistan raised 1.16 million rupees and sourced 2,000 disposable masks in just one week. They and 1,500 heavy duty N95 masks especially purchased by the representative office were donated to Pakistan.

The executive general manager of PIMS Hospital, Pakistan's designated hospital to lead the fight against the epidemic, expressed his appreciation to POWERCHINA and the other Chinese companies.

He added that the donation had alleviated the shortage of masks in a timely manner, especially the N95 masks which were of great importance to the medics working on the frontline.

Since the virus outbreak, POWERCHINA has also ensured the smooth construction of its projects in Pakistan, while ensuring the safety of its employees.
