MCC Resource Development Company, a Chinese company operating in Pakistan, has donated $250,000 to flood victims in the country’s largest province, Balochistan.
According to He Xuping, Chairman of MCC Resource Development Company, the flash flood disaster, which has not been seen in decades, has destroyed thousands of houses and a large number of facilities and equipment within Pakistan, causing great injuries to the country and its people, with over 1,100 people killed and a loss of approximately $10 billion dollars.
“I express condolences to those Pakistanis who lost their lives in the floods and sympathy to the governments and people affected by the calamities on behalf of MCC and over 3,000 Chinese and Pakistani employees working in Pakistan,” he added while speaking on the occasion.
Apart from their own flood relief work, MCC projects in Saindak and Duddar were instructed by MCC, which is directly managed by China Minmetals Group, to pay close attention to local disaster situations with the utmost effort and support to the local government and people in fighting against the flood devastations.
Following receipt of a detailed report on the flood disaster in Pakistan, MCC convened a thematic meeting and decided to donate $250,000 to Balochistan, where infrastructure conditions are poor in all aspects but have been severely impacted by the floods, in order to assist the government and people in fighting the floods and rebuilding their homeland.
Naseerabad Division is destroyed by the floods. Even the floods have separated this area from #Balochistan. To help the people of Naserabad, PDMA team reached them through the province of Sindh. So far some bodies have been recovered through relief operations.#BalochistanFloods pic.twitter.com/MOkeYdGwej

Despite their own serious damages and huge impact on normal production and life caused by the floods, Saindak and Duddar responded to the call of the Chinese and Pakistani governments and carried out the Group instructions without hesitation, demonstrating that even the floods are merciless, but Chinese and Pakistanis help each other.
In his remarks, Liu Kai, Company Secretary and Vice President of MCC Duddar Mining Company (Private) Limited, stated that there has never been a massive historical calamity that has not been paid for by historical advancement. “I am hopeful that the fraternal Pakistani government and people will be able to overcome the flood as soon as possible, restore their houses, and continue to work towards a better tomorrow,” he added.
