Recently, the Chief Justice of Pakistan asked the nation to contribute generously for the cause of building dams as Pakistan was facing a severe water shortage and without dams, we would be headed towards a drought. An account was opened following the Supreme Court orders to collect the contributions from people across Pakistan and from overseas Pakistanis. The funds collected in this respect so far have reached the mark of Rs 2 billion as per statistics.

All the commercial and micro-finance banks, and field offices of SBP Banking Services Corporation have opened the fund account to receive the contributions in cash, and you can contribute in the cause through cheques, pay orders and demand drafts at all their branches across the country. There is a SMS service too through which you can contribute Rs 10 by sending a SMS saying DAM to 8000.

OY calls outs its audience to contribute generously for this national cause.
