JS Bank’s relief efforts for flood victims in full swing!

The President & CEO of JS Bank personally visited the camps, along with senior team members to review the efforts of the JS Flood Relief team.

JS Bank – one of Pakistan’s fastest-growing Banks – is carrying out its relief efforts for flood victims with full zeal. JS Bank is catering to thousands of people in flood-impacted areas.

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.

To help the flood victims, JS Bank set up mobile clinics and is carrying out daily food ration drives in the flood-impacted areas. Moreover, JS Bank has teamed up with partners such as the Sindhi Association of North America (SANA) to provide medical facilities to flood victims.
