Petarian Foundation has decided to build
a Maternity Hospital and Child
Healthcare center at Jhimpir Sindh, since
there is no such facility to serve the over 300,000
people there within 50km of the place.
This is a project in community
development and providing maternity and healthcare
facilities to people of the area in a congenial
atmosphere. It will also have a primary school.
We have acquired 8 acres of land
on the banks of Keenjhar/Kalri Lake to build the
complex. The project will include:
Maternity Home / Child
Healthcare Centre / general hospital
Serai for families of
patients coming from distance for them to stay
Fish farming project
which would sustain the operating expenses of our
hospital and school
Vegetable farming which
would sustain the operating expenses of our hospital
Recreation area to serve
local population and visitors from outside, and
earnings from this would also sustain the operating
expenses of our hospital and school
3-D view of Master Plan for Jhimpir Project
Renowned architect Ejaz Ahed was kind
enough to prepare the Master Plan for us, and also do
the layout drawings for the hospital and the office
building. We are now also preparing detailed drawings
for the other buildings.
The Master Plan for Jhimpir Project
In order to sustain it, we intend to
eventually build other projects that will generate
income to offset the operating expenses of the hospital
and school, and thus lead to sustainability and
At the moment, we have funds to
construct only part of the complex, and are trying to
raise donations in cash and kind to build as much as we
can. For now, we believe that we have enough funds to be
able to construct only the following parts in the first
Around 25% of the
Hospital building (Total cost is expected to be around
Rs. 20 million)
The small office block
Once we complete the hospital, then we
will concentrate on doing the other buildings. But we
need to raise the Rs. 20 million (around US$ 250,000) as
soon as possible to complete the hospital building.
If we get more funds or material
donation, we will go for the residences of staff which
are going to be critical to sustain good manpower there.
And then we will move on to construct the other
components as we keep getting funds.
We already have one doctor and a team
working on the site out of makeshift facilities.

We hope that this project will help in
transforming the area, and to bring more investments for
the betterment of the people of the area.

It will also be a good outlet for
people in Karachi and Hyderabad for picnics, etc, and we
will use this to raise money for our operating expenses.
The place is very convenient and within 60-90 minute
drive from Karachi and Hyderabad.
