FEBRUARY 2020 - Art auction for Graham Layton Trust, Dubai

Our CEO, Mr. Bashir Ahmad, attended an event in Dubai hosted by the Graham Layton Trust. The event raised a considerable amount where Mr Ahmad, on behalf of the firm, participated in the charitable auction, to which he purchased two paintings from local contemporary artists. The proceeds of the purchase will go towards carrying out eye operations for the poor and needy in Pakistan. On this occasion, Mr. Ahmad reiterated his and Halkin’s commitment to support charitable activities in areas of Healthcare and Education. He commented “We are a responsible company and paying back to society is ingrained in our Corporate Culture and Values”


Graham Layton Trust (GLT) was founded in the same year (1984) as the Layton Rahmatulla Benevolent Trust (LRBT) itself, in order to provide crucial financial support from the outset. While our partner LRBT manages the operational process, GLT focuses on raising awareness, building the campaign and growing financial support for LRBT. GLT and LRBT work closely together to ensure fundraising efforts are linked to the needs of the hospitals and patients in Pakistan.
