RO Water Filtration Plant set up in Shireen Jinnah Colony

RO_Plant.jpgA 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.

Crowd_at_inauguration_of_plant.jpgIt 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:

    Good work Team PTI NA – 250. Keep doing hard work. Also i want to congratulate you for a successful campaign in NA – 246. Inshallah we will get more votes next time.
    Also, i have a suggestion regarding KPK. Please make a helpline for labours and mobilize your labour minister and deparment. I personally know that Industrialists are not following labour law and ministry is also incapable to implement laws. Please, take my suggestion to PTI core committe and please take quick actions for huge labour law voilations in kpk.
    For example, if a manufacturing company have 70 employees then only 10 or 15 employees have EOBI registrations. Companies give bribes to labour officers in return of such relaxations. This is going in all over Pakistan but i have no concern what is going in other provinces, i have concern with what PTI is doing in KPK as they have government there.

    Hopefully you will pressurize core committe to work on this issue.

    Thank you for your hard work and contribution for the progress of Pakistan.
