CDM, a consulting, engineering, construction, and operations firm delivering exceptional service to public and private clients worldwide, is providing financial assistance to the Pakistan flood disaster relief efforts under way.

“We are distressed by the terrible injury and loss of life, displacement of people, and destruction caused by the recent flooding in Pakistan,” notes Richard D. Fox., chairman and CEO of CDM. “As a member of the Pakistan community, with more than 200 CDM employees in Pakistan working to restore schools and health clinics in the wake of the 2005 earthquake there, we are greatly concerned about the current devastating natural disaster. Our first action is to assist with immediate humanitarian support and aid. We will also monitor the tragedy to assess whether the unique capabilities and experience of the firm can be of assistance in the future rebuilding of livelihoods and infrastructure.”

The firm has made substantial monetary contribution to the International Rescue Committee (www.theirc.org), a highly respected international organization that is already on the ground providing immediate relief assistance with water, sanitation, hygiene, and temporary shelters. CDM has also encouraged our employees to donate to these or other organizations currently active in responding to the disaster in Pakistan.
