Minister for Overseas Pakistanis Sajid Hussain Turi has appealed to the international community and international organizations, including International Labor Organization to help Pakistan compensate the flood-affected workers.
Addressing media in Islamabad on Tuesday, he said due to this calamity, many of our workers and daily wagers are jobless and looking for government’s support.
The Minister said the flood has affected over 30 million people and also destroyed basic infrastructure, triggering the unemployment across the country.
He expressed hope that with effective planning and support of international community, we will come out of this difficult situation. He also reiterated government’s commitment not to leave workers alone at this difficult time.
