Aman Foundation Employees Protest Outside KPC Over Non-Payment Of Salaries
KARACHI: Employees of Aman Foundation and Sindh Rescue and Medical Services (SRMS) on Wednesday protested outside the Karachi Press Club (KPC) over non-payment of their salaries since the last three months.
Due to non-payment of funds by the Sindh government, rescue operations have been partially suspended in the metropolis since Tuesday.
Earlier on Tuesday, the rescue workers demonstrated outside the Aman Foundation Head Office in Korangi and had warned of a protest outside KPC if their salaries were not paid.
It merits mention here that SRMS is the only free-of-cost ambulance service in the port city which was launched on June 25 as a public-private partnership between the Sindh government and Aman Health Care Services.
The protests also received coverage on social media after a citizen shared photos of the protestors on social media website Twitter, which showed the protestors holding placards inscribed with complaints against the Sindh government for failing to release SRMS funds.
