Karachi – September 07, 2016: K-Electric, under its Social Investment Programme (SIP), has partnered with Kashif Iqbal Thalassemia Care Centre (KITCC) for the installation of a dedicated 150 KVA PMT. The newly installed PMT will help meet the growing electricity demand of KITCC and improve its operations.
The utility provided relief for the installation of this dedicated PMT, in addition to providing free electricity to KITCC since 2015. KITCC has been providing treatment to over 23,000 Thalassemia patients and educating over 65,000 people about the disease annually, since its establishment in 1996.
According to KE spokesperson, “This initiative is a yet another testament of KE’s commitment to support humanitarian organizations – enabling them to continue their efforts for under-privileged communities they serve. As a socially responsible organization, K-Electric has always been at the forefront for providing generous and valuable support to different organizations working for social welfare.”
KE reaches around 3.5 million lives annually through various SIP initiatives such as facilitating education for the underprivileged; providing free electricity to Karachi’s key educational and health institutions; educating thousands of school children through its fire safety and energy conservation programmes while engaging youth through cricket and football platforms including KE-Lyari League. The utility has also received a number of CSR awards – recognizing its commitment towards embedding sustainable thinking into organisational culture and supporting the community in different areas.
