Makro-Habib associates with the Country to support and embrace its core values: integrity, loyalty, ethical behavior and respect for others. All of these are reflected in the commitment we bring to the society in which we work and live.
From supporting the fight against earthquakes and floods to providing school buildings, school supplies and monetary support to charitable organizations, Makro-Habib contributes their time and financial support to local programs they care deeply about.
Makro-Habib’s corporate responsibility towards community:
Right after the devastating earthquake of 8th October 2005, which raised most of Pakistanâ€™s northern region to the ground, Makro-Habib donated Rs. 1 million to Presidentâ€™s Relief Fund in Islamabad.
At the time of the Manghopir Centreâ€™s inauguration in Karachi, the Company donated a sum of Rs. 500,000 to Edhi Foundation which is the countryâ€™s most widely acclaimed and respected philanthropic organization.
Three months later, at the inauguration of our 2nd Centre on Ravi Road Lahore, Makro-Habib donated a sum of Rs. 500,000 to Family Support Program, which is also an indigenous, individual organization, supporting orphanages throughout the country.

After the Earthquake of 2005, the Government of Pakistan established â€œEarthquake Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Authorityâ€ (ERRA) which is an autonomous office, functioning under the auspices of Prime Ministerâ€™s Secretariat for post-earthquake damage assessment,
reconstruction and rehabilitation of the affected areas.
Makro-Habib contacted ERRA with offer of help and on their recommendation took up the task of re-constructing two government primary schools - the only two in the area, one each for Boys and Girls. Both the schools are in Katha Dobandi, Garhi Habibullah, and District Mansehra. Both are at a distance of a few meters from each other.
The earthquake damaged 90% of the buildings in Garhi Habibullah. Foreign and local aid agencies put up tent camps for Shelter to the effected families, for make-shift Hospitals and Maternity Wards, Storage for food supplies and later, temporary Schools for the children.
Makro-Habib in re-building these schools is obligated to follow the same basic architectural design that the schools had prior to the earthquake, but has made some alterations wherever possible without disturbing the predetermined lay-out.
Makro-Habib handed over both schools to the Government in November of 2007 complete with books and stationery according to the requirement of the school administration.
