A pioneering fund named the “Saylani Electricity Bill Support Fund” has been created by the non-profit Saylani Welfare International Trust to help people who are having trouble paying their expensive electricity bills.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the NGO claimed that “Rising fuel prices and the withdrawal of subsidies in the last year has escalated the cost of electricity across Pakistan, adding to the problems of citizens.”
Citizens are now approaching Saylani’s 630 locations across Pakistan asking for donations to pay their utility bills, the statement added.
The non-profit organization has been helping people with 63 aspects of daily life, like utility and food costs, for the past 20 years.
Saylani pioneered a “Pan-Pakistan Fund” in response to assist people in paying their bills. To those who qualify and use up to 200 units, donations will be made available. Lahore, Karachi, and Islamabad will be the first launch locations for the fund, with aspirations to expand to other cities.
Saylani Welfare made a plea to the general public and charitable donors to support their cause and make generous donations in order to help their fellow people in these trying times.
Additionally, the organization asked distribution firms including IESCO, LESCO, and K-E to make donations to the fund.
The chairman of Saylani Welfare stated, “Saylani is a recognised name which has been working with dedication to provide holistic support to people in need. We benefit over 300,000 people on a daily basis, and we created this fund because we understand that electricity bills are becoming a pressing concern for people this time. We request for donations to take this a sustainable and successful endeavor.”
