To extend care and support to the families displaced due to the recent floods in Sindh, JS Bank set up mobile clinics to provide medical attention to flood victims.

JS Bank – one of the fastest-growing banks in Pakistan – continues its commitment to Pakistan as the country battles with the devastation left behind by the recent floods.

The recent spell of monsoon in Pakistan was the worst in over a decade. Many districts in Sindh, Balochistan, Punjab, and KPK faced flash floods, leading to severe destruction and displacement of over 33 million people while killing over 1400.

As a result of the dire situation, the Pakistani nation, along with the international community has come together to provide relief goods to the flood victims. Apart from the government, the corporate sector has also been playing its part to help the flood victims.
