Nabors participated by allowing its employees to participate in the rescue mission in the way they could help. The company also contributed money to help. They started the Nabors Industries Relief Fund. They fundraised over $300,000 for humanitarian support. This gesture by Nabors is one that should be emulated by many firms in the world. A firm that cares for the welfare of the community living in the neighborhood.The initiatives by Nabors has a basis in the CEO of the company. He believes in giving.
