KARACHI, December 11, 2015:MD and CEO Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL) Syed Wamiq Bokhari inaugurated the company-sponsored 25-bed ward at Koohi Goth Hospital (KGH) located in Landhi, Karachi.

Bokhari accompanied by DMD Dr. Fareed Iqbal Siddiqui and other staff were welcomed by KGH’s President Dr. Tipu Sultan, General Secretary Dr. Syed Siraj Uddaula and Head of Resource Agha Adnan.

Speaking on the occasion, Bokhari expressed pleasure on the addition of the equipped health facility at KGH, which has been serving the disadvantaged community free of cost since 2006. He considered it PPL’s moral obligation to serve the nation through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme with an earmarked budget of 1.5 percent pre-tax profit for CSR activities, with actual spending touching about 2.5 percent.

KGH is a 200-bed healthcare center where obstetrics and gynecology services are provided free of cost. The hospital provides rehabilitation services to disadvantaged women mostly from Sindh and Balochistan, especially fistula patients with urology diseases due to child birth complications. This is the only charity fistula treatment center in South Asia and provides state-of-the-art laparoscopy surgery and fistula management training.
