Hashoo Group presents PKR 60 million cheque toward dam construction fund


KARACHI - Dec 07, 2018

Hashoo Group Chairman Saddrudin Hashwani and Deputy Chairman and CEO Murtaza Hashwani called upon the Prime Minister Imran Khan at his secretariat yesterday to present a cheque of PKR 60 million toward the Prime Minister and Chief Justice Bhasha Diamer and Mohmand dam fund. Hashoo Group owns and operates the landmark Pearl-Continental and Marriott Hotels in Pakistan, and this donation puts it among the top ten private sector companies contributing toward the national cause. Raising funds for the cause started earlier this year when employees from Hashoo Group voluntarily opted to donate one day’s salary into the supreme court fund. In August, the Chairman had called upon Imran Khan subsequent to his selection as Prime Minister to congratulate him and had assured him of full support in initiatives toward the betterment of Pakistan. The group employs almost 5,000 across the country and welcomes thousands of guests at its hotels on a daily basis. Hashoo Group joined collection efforts across the country, by not only offering employees to donate but also by placing donation points at all nine hotels across Pakistan. Hashoo Group has always been at the forefront for causes related to the nation and its citizens. Several projects such as tree plantation, battling climate change and water preservation are also part of the group's objective in days to come. In 1988, the management of Institute of Business Administration (IBA) in Karachi conferred the Outstanding Professional Contribution Award upon Mr Hashwani.
