Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Saqib Nisar after initiating a fund for the creation of two major dams in the country recently urged citizens to contribute in foreign or local currencies to reach the required goal within a shorter span of time. Now you can donate to Supreme Court of Pakistan for construction of Diamer Bhasha and Mohmand Dams Fund. One can easily donate Rs. 10 for Dams Through SMS. After the successful implementation of donation through SMS, Prime Minister Imran Khan asked overseas Pakistani to donate as much as they can for the noble cause of Donation for Dams. Overseas Pakistanis had an overwhelming reaction at the Dam Donation Call by Prime Minister.

When I donated for #DamFund and shared it on my FB wall, one of my friend immediately sent me 1000 pounds in my bank account online, and asked me to deposit those too.
That’s the spirit and passion of overseas Pakistanis.#DonateForDams

The prime minister cited the example of Egypt, which he said had launched a similar drive to build dams using its own resources. While asking overseas Pakistani to donate for Dams, PM said:
“This fund will only be used for building dams. I know not every overseas Pakistani will be able to give $1,000, especially the ones working in the Middle East. To them, I would say that donate as much as you can. But the overseas Pakistanis in Europe and the United States, I want them to send at least $1,000 or even more if they can”
Ever since Prime Minister Imran Khan appealed to the nation for donations to the dams fund set up by the Supreme Court, resident and overseas Pakistanis have responded overwhelmingly to the national cause raising the amount to nearly Rs2 billion.
Lets’ set an Example by constructing dams with ou money!
