In response to the recent floods in Pakistan, the Motorola Foundation has donated US$50,000 to CARE (www.care.org) and pledged an additional US$50,000 to match Motorola employee donations to CARE.

Other than the donation from Motorola Foundation, employees in Pakistan have also contributed meaningfully towards relief activities for flood survivors. Motorola Pakistan has supplied food and other staple items including medicines worth US$14,600 through rescue teams in different areas of Punjab and Khayber Pakhtunkhwa provinces.

Earlier this year, the Motorola Foundation provided a US$100,000 grant to CARE to support the Community-Based Education for Girls Project in Pakistan. The project will expand access to quality education for girls in rural northwest Pakistan.
