Acclaimed fashion designer Asim Jofa has been appointed as advisor for PPE quality control by Sindh Health Ministry. The decision came on the back of Jofa’s contribution in designing and providing free of cost PPE to frontline health workers at the very beginning of COVID-19 pandemic in Pakistan.
“Alhamdolillah I have been appointed an advisor for the quality control of PPE by Sindh Minister for the whole province,” wrote the high-end apparel designer on Twitter.
“I am thankful for the opportunity & will do my best in fulfilling this task,” his tweet further said.
