JCB Pakistan floods donation

11 October, 2010

JCB Chairman Sir Anthony Bamford has pledged assistance worth US$250,000 to help in the reconstruction effort in the wake of the devastating floods in Pakistan.
He is donating two high-specification 4CX backhoe loaders (with attachments) to the stricken country where the worst floods in decades have left millions people homeless and where rebuilding costs are expected to be in the region of $17 billion.
Sir Anthony said: “Britain has been leading the way with the level of its donations to Pakistan, and, as a British manufacturer, I am keen for us to help in any way possible and hope that JCB’s donation of machines can assist in some small way.”
It is not the first time that JCB has helped Pakistan in times of natural disaster. After the 2005 earthquake the company donated excavators to help in the clean up operation. Earlier this year JCB donated equipment to help the disaster relief effort in Haiti following the earthquake that killed around 220,000 people. This was followed by assistance worth $100,000 to help in the rebuilding efforts in the wake of the Chilean earthquake. JCB donated a 3C backhoe loader complete with attachments and spare parts to help with reconstruction efforts in the country’s second city Concepcion, which was hit by an 8.8-magnitude quake, killing more than 700 people.
