Dawlance and Bondh e Shams Launch ‘OASIS Box’ for Clean Water

In a remarkable move that underscores its commitment to social responsibility, Dawlance, Pakistan’s leading brand of innovative home appliances, has joined forces with Bondh e Shams, a dynamic social development organization, to launch the ‘OASIS Box’ initiative during World Water Week.

Dawlance, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Arçelik, the second-largest manufacturer in Europe, has consistently sponsored initiatives aimed at accelerating Pakistan’s socio-economic progress. This collaboration with Bondh e Shams is a testament to their dedication to making a positive impact.

The ‘OASIS Box’ is the focal point of this ambitious partnership. It is a portable, solar-powered water-filtration and storage unit designed to combat bacterial water contamination, ensuring daily access to safe, clean water. This initiative aligns with Bondh e Shams’ sustainable vision to provide clean drinking water to marginalized communities throughout Pakistan.

Under the agreement, Dawlance has committed to providing financial support and other resources over the next five years to help Bondh e Shams complete this vital project. Each OASIS Box has the capacity to produce 10,000 liters of fresh drinking water daily, which can serve the needs of up to 10,000 people every day.

This partnership goes beyond providing clean water; it aims to enhance local infrastructure. Boreholes and water access points will be developed, and water quality will be tested to ensure compliance with the standards set by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the government. Bondh e Shams will deploy a team of engineers responsible for the installation and maintenance of the OASIS Boxes, with a five-year operational guarantee.

Umar Ahsan Khan, the CEO of Dawlance, expressed his pleasure in contributing to this noble humanitarian effort to alleviate Pakistan’s water scarcity challenges. He acknowledged the mission undertaken by Bondh e Shams as long and challenging but emphasized Dawlance’s commitment to support this capable and credible humanitarian organization.

This initiative by Dawlance serves as an inspiring example for the corporate and industrial sectors to play an active role in Pakistan’s progress. Socially-responsible enterprises can make a significant difference in improving the quality of life for ordinary people and offering hope for a brighter future. Dawlance and Arçelik have adopted social development policies aimed at providing quality education, healthcare, empowerment, and opportunities while safeguarding environmental sustainability for future generations. This collaboration with Bondh e Shams is a testament to their unwavering commitment to these values and their dedication to making a positive impact on society.
