free healthcare in partnership with sina
In order to provide for healthcare facilities EPCL, in partnership with SINA, constructed a hospital at the cost of Rs.
15.7 million in the heart of Ghagghar Phattak area. The clinic provides multiple services free of cost such as
consultation, OPD, ultra-sound, vaccination, lab testing, and even free medication. In addition to these services,
there is a Community Engagement Team in place which goes door to door to nearby villages to educate people of
the availability of free healthcare at the SINA Clinic and there exist on-going medical camps that aid people in
getting regulatory checkups and encourages the residents to come forward with their concern for example, this
past month EPCL organized a medical eye-camp where POB doctors examines 151 patients in total and followed up
accordingly for further checkups. The Sina hospital has a daily round of 125-150 patients and all those patients
who have so far received medical assistance and treatment at the clinic are not only content but are more than
thankful to EPCL for providing them with a fully equipped healthcare unit.
water purification plant in partnership with the water foundation
A major health hazard which EPCL addressed, was the absence of clean and safe drinking water for the residents of
the Ghagghar Phattak community. Most of these communities received water through the public water supply
system, which was not only irregular and scarce in supply, but also extremely contaminated with life threatening
microbial bacteria including e-coli and fecal e-coli. The entire issue had become a major public health concern,
because such waterborne diseases are responsible for a significant amount of human and economic losses; these
losses include loss of millions of working hours of productivity in total, and of course, associated costs for health
care. Hence, EPCL, on its mission to make Ghagghar Phattak a safe and healthy living space, installed two water
filtration plants at Ghagghar Phattak and Razzakabad in partnership with The Water Foundation, and is in the
process of setting up three additional water filtration plants in different villages of Ghagghar Phattak. The daily
consumption of water lies between 50000-55000 liters per day. The improvement in the quality of water from the
water filtration plants compared to normal tap water have not gone unnoticed and most of the residents have
switched to this alternative and have consequently experienced better health conditions.
