A Reverse Osmosis Plant has been set up in the Shirin Jinnah Colony through the signal efforts of Mr Khurrum Sher Zaman, the donor Mrs Shamsa Fatemi in memory of her late husband and Dr Seema Zia Chairperson of NA250 health team. It shall deliver 20,000 litres of mineral bottle quality water every day to the community. This is the 6th such plant set up in PS 112 while seven are already fully functional in PS 113.
It was inaugurated today in a simple ceremony by Dr Arif Alvi, Mr Khurrum Sher Zaman, Dr Seema Zia and the Mufti of the local mosque. The total cost of the plant was approximately Rs 1 million and was constructed within the last month. This is the second water filtration plant donated by the family as the Ms Uzma daughter of Mrs Fatemi had donated an RO plant which was set up two months earlier in Neelum Colony in PS112/NA250
A simple dua ceremony was held by the Mufti Sahib of the local mosque. The local population was very excited. The plant will extract water from a tube well specially dug for this purpose so that it may not be dependent on the local uncertain water supply. Only 35% of the water extracted from the underground well will turn into clear drinking water the rest would be waste. There are nine taps for the community to fill water from.
The plant would require major maintenance every two years when its US manufactured membranes, as well as the charcoal and sand filters would need to be changed. We must appreciate the efforts of PTI community leaders Iqbal, and Khalid. Ms Sairah Khalid and many other members and supporters were present.
These philanthropic projects are being carried out under a Registered Charity which is called the Insaf Community Welfare Society. Details can be seen at: http://www.na250.com/insaf_community_welfare_society
