He will donate two high-specification 4CX backhoe loaders with attachments to the stricken country where the floods have left millions of people homeless and where rebuilding costs are expected to cost about GBP10 billion. It is not the first time JCB has helped Pakistan in times of natural disaster. After the 2005 earthquake, the company donated excavators to help in the clear-up operation.
