Karachi: 9th April, 2020 – Dawlance has committed a generous donation to The Indus Hospital (TIH), to help the nation fight against the threat of Coronavirus pandemic. Being the technology-leader in Pakistan’s home-appliances industry, Dawlance is committed in making valuable contributions towards the development of health care facilities. TIH is among the most credible and resourceful institutions in Pakistan, that is well-reputed for providing Free-of-cost, high-quality health-care to everyone.
As part of a new CSR initiative by Dawlance, it will provide The Indus Hospital with a generous donation of nearly 120 high-quality appliances, including more than 40 Refrigerators & Freezers, 60 air-conditioners, along with many Microwave ovens, water-dispensers and Electric-Kettles. Dawlance appliances and technologies will enhance the hospital’s capacity to overcome the COVID-19 challenge, by maintaining comfortable room-temperatures to care for the patients, while storing large quantities of Corona kits and testing-samples in the ideal ambient temperature below -20 degrees which shows the reliability of Dawlance appliances.
As the doctors and para-medical staff are the frontline force in the fight against the virus, these reliable appliances from Dawlance will equip them to save more lives, with timely diagnosis, medical-care and treatment for the increased number of patients, expected during this public-health crisis. These products will be used in TIH Laboratories, Blood centers and the Diagnostic-Vans created for Community-based screening. The 50 Mobile-Testing units will be covering many urban areas like; Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, Quetta, etc.
A formal ceremony was held recently, where The Chief Executive Officer of Dawlance – Umar Ahsan Khan stated that; “Dawlance has the vision to elevate the quality of life in Pakistan. We understand that Pakistan has a weak health-care infrastructure, so we must continue to contribute generously and fulfil our national responsibility. With this effort we want to inspire the resourceful corporate sector to join the nation’s efforts in creating a better public-health infrastructure. Dawlance promises to play its role in improving the healthcare infrastructure, while also promoting education, awareness and environmental protection.”
“Over the past 4 decades, Dawlance has evolved as a consumer-focused brand. As a fully-owned subsidiary of the 3rd largest manufacturer of consumer electronics in Europe – Arcelik Turkey, we at Dawlance will continue to support the hospitals that have been designated for COVID-19 treatment, till this disease is totally eliminated. We are also engaging and informing the public at all levels, through various channels, including digital media. This is a global crisis of unprecedented scale and we pray for everyone who in impacted by it.” Umar Khan added.
Amidst this global pandemic situation, hundreds of nations are forced to lockdown their cities, to ensure social-distancing, while Pakistan has also taken extensive precautionary measures to prevent an exponential spread of this ailment. Urgent preparations are underway all over the nation, for timely diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19 patients, where the corporate entities can play a major role too.
So far, a large scale spread of COVID-19 in Pakistan is preventable as the Government has taken early and tough decisions, but only if the people act responsibly, take precautions, do not leave their homes unnecessarily and wash their hands regularly. The next few weeks are critical to contain and eliminate this disease, so the economic impact of this lockdown can also be minimized, especially for saving the poorest segments of the society. Dawlance is committed and ready for sustainable efforts for the nation, to prevent any such challenge in future too.
