CHAGHI: In a remarkable partnership, Reko Diq Mining Company (RDMC) and Indus Hospital & Healthcare Network (IHHN) have joined forces to provide crucial healthcare services to the residents of Nokkundi. District Chagai recently welcomed its very first Indus Mobile Health Clinic, a generous donation from IHHN, designed to bridge healthcare gaps for the next 3 months while the construction of the Indus Hospital in Nokkundi is underway.

This innovative Indus Hospital Mobile Clinic, inaugurated by the RDMC Country Head and the Community Development Committee (CDC), will be strategically stationed in six key locations across Nokkundi. This ensures improved accessibility to essential healthcare services for the local population.

State-of-the-art mobile medical unit established

Inside this state-of-the-art mobile medical unit, run and managed by Indus Hospital, you’ll find a dedicated team of doctors and community workers offering primary healthcare services. Moreover, the mobile unit is equipped with a fully functional lab and pharmacy stocked with essential medical supplies. Ali Ehsan Rind, the Country Manager of RDMC, affirmed, “This mobile clinic will provide much-needed healthcare to the local communities in and around Nokkundi temporarily until we can set up the Indus Hospital facility at Nokkundi.

As with all RDMC social investment projects, the mobile clinic enjoys the support and guidance of the local Community Development Committee (CDC), ensuring that projects meet the specific needs of the community.

RDMC committed to the social development of the area

This mobile clinic is the second healthcare initiative undertaken by RDMC in the region, following the inauguration of the Community Health Center in Humai village, a project developed in collaboration with IHHN and funded by RDMC. Additionally, RDMC has opened two primary schools in Humai and Mashki Chah villages and provided access to clean drinking water through a water treatment plant in the Humai village. These initiatives are part of RDMC’s commitment to social development in the district since the signing of the new Reko Diq agreement in late 2022.

In summary, the collaboration between RDMC and IHHN has brought essential healthcare closer to the people of Nokkundi, demonstrating their dedication to improving the well-being of the local community.
