Nong Rong, Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan, highlighted in his speech that after the devastating floods in Pakistan, CMPak quickly invested a lot of manpower and material resources to repair the service base station, and ensured the communication in the disaster area to be restored in a short time, which shows the strong friendship between China and Pakistan. It also actively donated money and materials, fully reflecting the social responsibility of Chinese-funded enterprises.
“I am extremely proud of our technical employees who remained on their toes, day and night, to restore network in areas which were completely submerged in flood water and where the infrastructure was damaged,” Zong CEO Wang Hua said at the event. “Our teams recovered 99% of the CMPak network in three weeks, which is a commendable effort.”
More than 1,000 of CMPak’s base stations have been out of service due to severe flooding in Pakistan. In the face of the disaster, the company’s employees braved the difficulties and grabbed one communication “lifeline” after another. Within three weeks, the company achieved the basic restoration of the service base stations, effectively ensuring a smooth network for people and government departments in the disaster area.
Furthermore, CMPak has launched a free call plan in the flood-hit areas of Pakistan with more than 3.1 million subscribers. It has also assisted governments in sending 117 million text messages against flooding. Medical camps have been set up in four hard-hit areas, where the company is providing free food and medicine and conducting free medical treatment activities. The company also organized the staff to carry out “One Day Donation” campaign to raise Rs 4 million. Together with the company’s donation, Rs 10 million were donated to the Sindh government for flood relief and post-disaster reconstruction.
