ISLAMABAD:Pakistan's Ambassador to the United States Masood Khan has called for setting up a coordination body to streamline and synergize activities of all volunteers, philanthropists, professionals and others belonging to Pak diaspora in the United States.
He made these remarks during a meeting with a delegation of Al-Khidmat Foundation Pakistan led by the President of the Foundation Muhammad Abdus Shakoor in Washington, says a press release received here on Wednesday from Washington DC.
The Ambassador said that humanitarian organizations in Pakistan could form a coalition within Pakistan to maximize their international outreach, avoid duplication and improved coordination.
The President Al-Khidmat Foundation briefed the Ambassador about a range of welfare activities which were being undertaken by the organization with active support from Pakistani community residing in the United States.
Al-Khidmat Foundation also served brothers and sisters of Turkey and Syria when a devastating earthquake wreaked havoc and resulted in huge loss of lives and property in these countries. The Ambassador was informed that the Foundation was serving in every nook and corner of Pakistan and was reaching out to communities regardless of any consideration of caste, color and creed.
Masood Khan said the overwhelming trust and confidence reposed by the diaspora and the US philanthropists over Pakistan's humanitarian organizations is indeed a matter of great pride for all of us.
