Karachi, August 29, 2022: Chairman NEPRA Tauseef H. Farooqi visited the CLF’s Emergency Room at PIMS and praised the paperless, automated model of care implemented by the foundation.
“I came to know about the CLF’s cause under NEPRA’s ‘Power with Prosperity’ initiative. Now that I have witnessed their work, I am quite impressed,” said Tauseef.
He added that CLF is driving meaningful progress when it comes to child health in Pakistan. “I am looking forward to the growth of their network across the country,” said Chairman NEPRA.
It is worth adding here that NEPRA’s ‘Power with Prosperity’ drive is facilitating the power sector players to invest in the social uplift projects in the communities they’re working with.
On the occasion, Director PIMS Dr. Khalid Masud informed the Chairman NEPRA that the upgraded children’s ER at PIMS is a result of a robust public-private partnership.
“Under the PPP initiative, the ER’s area was expanded to 5000 square feet and its capacity has been increased from 12 to 30 beds to serve more children,” said Khalid.
It is pertinent to mention here that the CLF has so far saved 4.5 million children absolutely free of cost through its 12 state-of-the-art Children’s Emergency Rooms in Sindh, Balochistan and Punjab. The organization is expanding rapidly to achieve its mission of a child-safe Pakistan and aims to cover every district of every province by 2030.
