Started in 2014, this project in Sheikhupura has been sponsored by individual donor Dr. Shahid K Chaudhary.
The CHC under this project has been equipped with relevant facilities for its smooth and proper functioning. The center has initiated preventive healthcare and treated 2,356 patients up to 2017. Two infant deaths out of eighty nine live births were reported during 2017. In addition, strong coordination with community and health groups regarding preventive health care activities in the area has been developed. Mobile medical camps were held to extend outreach and facilitation to the community, particularly for mother and child healthcare. Also, the three installed water filtration plants have been effectively meeting the people’s need for clean drinking water.
The solid waste management system developed for households is being executed successfully. Waste bins have also been placed to ensure proper disposal of solid waste. A “Street Cleaning” campaign was launched as well to ensure cleanliness in village streets and in the sewerage channels.
The VDOs have been focusing on developing their youth’s future. Community meetings identified unemployed youth by mutual consultation of the VDO members and provided them with technical trainings. Over the course of the year, targets of Village Development Plans were achieved by the VDOs. Capacity building of the VDOs was also carried out. This included disaster management training with Rescue 1122, Basic CMST and Advance CMST.
