NOKKUNDI, Aug 21th (Gwadar Pro) - In order to improve the urban environment in Nokkundi and civil living conditions, a launching ceremony was held.

Nokkundi is a desert city in Baluchistan province near the border with Afghanistan and Iran.

In order to improve the living environment of local citizens, the Nokkundi government has launched an environmental clean-up initiative.
"The local government sent us a letter asking for support. As a company that has rooted in this region for 19 years, we decided to donate Rs 10 million construction fund to help the local government and residents to create a beautiful city. Our decision and action have been praised by the local government and the people," said the MCC spokesperson.
Under the guidance of the local citizen volunteers, a loader and 3 trucks were dispatched for garbage collection. The household garbage, weeds, abandoned items and uneven roads were cleaned up and rectified, and the urban environment in Nokkundi has been improved.
