Hundreds of poor people of Gwadar become recipients of 10,000 free ration flour bags donated by Chinese Consulate Karachi.
Each family received three bags of 10 kg in connection with fresh act of philanthropy initiated by Chinese Consulate Karachi in collaboration with China Overseas Port Holding Company, government departments, local administration and Pakistan army.
Most of recipients hailed from fishermen community. A fishmen body “Fishermen National Party” secretary Adam Qadir Buksh heaped praise for donation of flour bags by Chinese Consulate Karachi saying it was dire need of hour to render such respite to poor people badly afflicted by soring tide of price hike.
A special ceremony titled “long live Pakistan China friendship hand in hand for a better future” also held in Gwadar Business Center. New Chinese Consul General Karachi Mr Yang Yundong spoke on the occasion and termed ration charity for public good. Other participants included COPHC deputy general manager Hao Jian, Additional Deputy Commissioner Zakir Baloch and CSO Pakistan Navy Captain Fahad Sadiq.
Gwadar Port Authority (GPA) official told Gwadar Pro that Chinese official gestured to continue free ration distribution drive in a bid to provide relief to poor strata of society in Gwadar with inducing deep sense that China always stands by local poor people and works for poverty-mitigation measures to ensure healthy and poverty-free future for Gwadar.
Later, proposal was mulled to embark upon long term public welfare projects besides perpetuating free rations scheme, he said. “One proposal is to develop picnic spots and open gyms on selected points of long stretch of beach in Gwadar,” he added.
