Sehat Kahani and Rotary Pakistan Smart Villages Partner to pioneer healthcare access in interior Sindh

Sehat Kahani and Rotary Pakistan Smart Villages have formalised a strategic partnership through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signing ceremony on a momentous occasion marked by collaboration and commitment. The MOU signing occurred during the Rotary International District HOPECON conference 2024 at Movenpick Hotel Karachi on April 27th. Through this partnership, Sehat Kahani and Rotary Pakistan Smart Villages aim to establish five clinics in Interior Sindh, catering mostly to individuals from very low-income Hindu communities, thereby addressing healthcare disparities and realising the vision of creating smart villages in the region.

Commenting on the development, the CEO and Co-founder of Sehat Kahani, Dr Sara Saeed Khurram, expressed her enthusiasm, stating, “Through this collaboration, we are reinforcing our commitment to democratising healthcare access for all, regardless of their geographic location. By leveraging innovative clinical solutions, we aspire to revolutionise primary healthcare delivery in Pakistan.”

Furthermore, the COO and Co-founder of Sehat Kahani, Dr Iffat Zafar Aga, emphasised the transformative potential of this partnership, saying, “Our e-clinics, specially tailored for low-income areas, have already begun to bridge the gap of healthcare inaccessibility. With Rotary Pakistan’s support, we are poised to extend our reach and impact, ensuring no individual is left behind in receiving quality medical care.”

Rotary International Director Faiz Kidwai expressed his optimism about the collaboration, stating, “By focusing on sustainable loving, which besides shelter also includes agriculture, cattle farming, art crafts, renewable energy, waste management, water conservation, E-learning, and increased healthcare access, Rotary is empowering rural communities with a focus on girls to mitigate their issues.”

District Governor Hanif Khan assured his district’s total support and engagement of various regional Rotary clubs.

Furthermore, the President of the Rotary Club of Karachi, Shahzad Sabir, commented,

“This collaboration signifies our shared commitment to making quality healthcare accessible to all, leaving a legacy of care and kindness for generations to come under the Rotary’s motto “Service Above Self”.

With a shared commitment to service, inclusivity, and sustainable development, Sehat Kahani and Rotary Pakistan Smart Villages are set to embark on a transformative journey towards creating smart villages and empowering communities through enhanced healthcare access. This collaboration represents a testament to the power of partnerships in driving meaningful change and building a brighter, more equitable future for all.
