MamooInPakistan was awarded Best in Service Innovation using IT award. So what exactly MamooInPakistan innovating? Living abroad? There are many times when you need to get some work done back in Pakistan. However, you usually have to ask for favors from friends or relatives and usually these are huge favors as they often take a lot of time. Plus, it’s often difficult for your family when it comes to health and hospitals. There, this website can come to rescue. Don’t go by its name, I think it came from the fact that usually your “mamoos” or “chachus” get that kind of work done for you when you’re outside the country.
MamooInPakistan was recognized last year by PASHA in their annual Gong as an idea that has huge potential. In one year MamooinPakistan has converted to a recognizable brand among expat Pakistanis, non Pakistanis who need things done in Pakistan as well as within Pakistan when you need help in another city.
