Pakistan has been severely hurt by an earthquake. Tens of thousands of people have died, and even more have lost their homes. Major efforts are required to help the survivors. Therefore Skanska has decided to contribute to the relief effort by donating USD 200,000, about SEK 1.6 M, to the Red Cross.

Skanska also encourages its employees to be generous and give money to aid the earthquake victims. "What has happened in Pakistan is a tragedy, and our thoughts at this time are with all the victims suffering from the impact of the earthquake. For Skanska it feels natural to contribute to the aid effort as we have done several times before”, says Stuart Graham, President and CEO of Skanska.
