KARACHI: – Ziauddin Group (Dr Ziauddin Hospital, Ziauddin University and HTV) organized a successful hydrate campaign, called “Pyaas Bhujao” (quench your thirst) in the city.
The drive was aimed at providing clean drinking water to different slum areas of the metropolis.
The campaign was initiated after the city experienced the worst heatwave tragedy that claimed around 2000 lives.
Under the campaign, more than 10,000 people were provided clean drinking water, ORS and free medical check-ups. The campaign focused on traffic policemen, street children, beggars, hawkers and others.
A heatstroke centre was also established in Dr Ziauddin Hospital, North Nazimabad, where doctors and paramedical staff provided round-the-clock treatment to the heatwave patients.
The people who volunteered in this campaign were motivated to help the people of Karachi – and this was evident in the way they were ever ready to visit different areas and help the poor and destitute.
