Farhan Sarwar | CEO
Financial success whilst putting people first
“My father taught me how to grow the family business and most importantly how to responsibly shape the future. I learnt to make wise decisions that generate financial success whilst putting our people first. I also learnt how to make sure that expansion never jeopardises business success and job security.
But we at NRS International and HSNDS have gone one step further: we invest in our community’s future. Through our Bilqees Sarwar Foundation we now offer healthcare to more than 180,000 patients every year in our very own hospital, and provide thousands of children with quality education. This is how we nurture our future generations.”

Farhaj Sarwar | Managing Director
Long-term relationships are key
“Running a responsible business means building long-term relationships with our key clients. Crucially it also means understanding the true needs of our end-users: people living in refugee camps, those living under the shadow of malaria or HIV/AIDS, and the billions without reliable electricity.
I believe that our strong corporate social responsibility agenda makes smart business and underscores our commitment to the environment, our employees, and the communities where we work. This is how we make a difference.”
