FLOOD RELIEF ACTIVITIES DURING YEAR-2013:
OGDCL has always been the first to come to the rescue of affected communities in times of national emergencies. We have time and again rallied to help victims of natural calamities, maintaining uninterrupted supply of petroleum products (diesel) and contributing to relief and rehabilitation measures both in the form of cash and kind.

2014 floods in Pakistan have affected large areas of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan and Punjab. Around one million people have been affected by the floods, hundreds have lost their lives and tens of thousands have been deprived of their houses, properties, crops and life stock. The Government of Pakistan has launched a massive relief and rehabilitation operation and all possible assistance is being provided to the flood affectees. A Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Fund-2014 has been created to collect donations and OGDCL being Responsible Corporate at the National grief played an exemplary role and donated Rs.250 Million for this natural disaster   . 

Under corporate social responsibility, OGDCL took concrete steps for extending relief to flood affected people. As part of such efforts, the Management approved Rs 50.00 million for relief and rehabilitation of flood affected people in Balochistan and Rs. 3.00 Million for Sindh to help ease the woes of the flood affected people who were in urgent need of food. The Company arranged food hampers to flood victims and saved many precious lives.
