The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has extended a helping hand to paramedics working on the Covid-19 crisis, by offering to convert their high performance centre into a lodging facility for medical staff.

The paramedics are working at Karachi’s Expo Centre, which has now become a makeshift hospital.

“All the paramedic staff are our heroes, as in these challenging and difficult times, they are risking their lives to save the lives and wellbeing of many affected by COVID-19,” chief operating officer Salman Nasser said.

“As a small token of our appreciation and acknowledgement to these unsung heroes, and as part of our duty of care, the PCB is pleased to offer its state-of-the-art Hanif Mohammad High Performance Centre as a temporary lodging and boarding for the paramedic staff working at Expo Centre hospital, so that they can serve those suffering from COVID-19 more effectively and efficiently.”

The PCB has acted on a request from the Sindh government to take this step.
