Fauji Fertilizer Company (FFC) and Global Institute of Quality (GIHQ) have signed an MOU to extend quality healthcare services to vulnerable and marginalized communities as part of FFC recently initiated project “Sona Center” for a Food Secure Pakistan. The MOU ceremony was held at FFC Head Office, which was presided over by CE & MD FFC, Lt Gen Tariq Khan (Retd) HI (M) and CEO GIHQ, Dr Uzma Anjum.
Sona Centers are envisioned to extend much needed capacity building, technical support, micro financing as well as social welfare support including Healthcare, Education, Women Empowerment, and Community Support across Pakistan in order to reverse the tide of food insecurity, which is affecting almost 45% population of Pakistan as per recent estimates.
The first center has already started its operations at Rahim Yar Khan. GIHQ with its extensive outreach in health services especially concerning tele-health and awareness programs will collaborate with FFC to extend health coverage to the targeted population.
