KESC promises free electricity for institutions involved in noble causes

Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) has signed another Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) under its Social Investment Programme with Karwan-e-Hayat, a welfare NGO working in mental healthcare sector, to provide absolutely free of cost electricity to its three facilities located in Keamari, Korangi and Khayaban-e-Jami.
The NGO, working since 1983, provided free psychiatric and rehabilitation care to 80 percent of its mentally ill patients. During the past year, the programme had provided free consultation to over 31,000 patients.
The MoU was signed by KESC CEO Nayyer Hussain and Karwan-e-Hayat CEO Saleemuddin Ahmed. Speaking on the occasion, Nayyer said that, “We are happy to have been able to support mental healthcare as this section of medical help is generally given less priority. Our Social Investment Programme, designed to help the less privileged and the needy would continue to serve the society.”
Meanwhile, Saleemuddin said in his message that, “KESC has indeed proven itself to be the torch bearer of corporate social responsibility by providing absolutely free electricity to social welfare education and healthcare institutions. We hope that other corporate entities would follow the example set by KESC and create a culture of caring about those who could not help themselves.”
KESC’s Social Investment Programme was aimed at extending support to various vital healthcare and educational institutions serving the under-privileged and needy on purely humanitarian grounds. KESC would pay electricity bills of these welfare entities in part or in full to subsidise their energy cost in recognition of the noble causes these institutions were pursuing.
Prior to this, KESC had signed five MoUs under its Social Investment Plan (SIP), the first being with Indus Hospital for bearing 50 percent of their electricity cost, the second and third with Marie Adelaide Leprosy Centre (MALC) and with Layton Rahmatulla Benevolent Trust (LRBT) respectively, while the fourth MoU was signed with TCF (320 TCF schools) for covering 100 percent of the cost of electricity used by these institutions every month. Furthermore, the fifth memorandum was signed with Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) to provide absolutely free of cost electricity to its three dialysis centres in the city. With this programme, the KESC was in a position to positively impact 2.1 million lives.
