Together for Pakistan: An appeal for donations with AkzoNobel contribution matching

As Oscar Wezenbeek, Managing Director, AkzoNobel Decorative Paints, South-East South Asia (SESA) says, “We’re deeply saddened by the developing situation in Pakistan as the country faces one of the worst natural disasters in history. It’s more so in difficult times like this, that we can make a much bigger and genuine difference to the millions of impacted people on ground by pooling our efforts together into a united fund-raising program.”

With this thought in mind, AkzoNobel has initiated “Together for Pakistan” – an emergency fund-raising effort for the millions of Pakistani people impacted by the unprecedented floods in the country. The donation-matching campaign by AkzoNobel means that for every euro or dollar donated; the company will match the same – up to the value of €50,000.  

The appeal is open for all – our employees, customers, suppliers, friends and family till November 20, 2022.

If you can, please donate now via the JustGiving link: Together for Pakistan – Donation matching campaign by AkzoNobel.

This campaign of AkzoNobel is facilitated via Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC), an umbrella group of charities which coordinates and launches collective appeals for people caught up in disasters and humanitarian crises around the world. All online donations made by AkzoNobel employees will go directly to the DEC Pakistan appeal for supporting the local communities impacted by the floods in Pakistan.

“For each of us, the time to act is now. It’s important that we do whatever we can to try and assist those who desperately need our help,” said Mubbasher Omar, Chief Executive Officer, AkzoNobel Pakistan Limited. “For the millions of people displaced from homes and facing challenges of availability of basic amenities such as food, safe shelter and loss of livelihood, your donation could mean the difference between life and death.”
