IIRO announces to expand operations in Pakistan

03 December, 2013

ISLAMABAD: International Islamic Relief Organisation (IIRO) has decided to expand its operations in Pakistan from relief work to social sector development.

This was decided on Monday at a meeting between IIRO Secretary General Ehssan Saleh Taieb and former minister for information and broadcasting Senator Muhammad Ali Durrani.

During the meeting, Director General of IIRO foreign offices Abdul Rehman al Matter, Dr Khalid Ottamani, director Saudi Public Assistance, Behrullah Hazarvi and officials of Saudi embassy were also present.

Welcoming Ehssan Saleh Taieb, his delegation and Abdul Rehman al Matter, Durrani expressed his gratitude to the IIRO chief and said that the International Islamic Relief Organisation was doing a great job in helping the victims of natural calamities. He said that the people of Pakistan had great reverence and affection to the people and state of Saudi Arabia.

"People of Pakistan have special respect and love for King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz and the royal family as they have always been forthcoming in helping Pakistan and its people."

"I come from a poor area of Bahawalpur. Let me admit that the relief work undertaken by the IIRO for the people affected by floods and earthquake in across Pakistan is exemplary and it has no parallel. For this help and assistance, Pakistan and its people are indebted to the funding made by King Abdullah, the people of Saudi Arabia, IIRO and its Pakistan office and the Saudi ambassador to Pakistan for the generous and valuable support of disaster-hit people," Durrani said.
