Kohat: Two water filtration units built at a cost of Rs. 6.4 million by a local cement business were launched on Wednesday as part of its social corporate responsibility fund. An official from the firm stated that Rs. 1.4 million had been made aside for the upkeep of the filtration facilities, and that a four-member crew had been hired to supervise them. He said that work on installing water filtration units in three mosques, at a cost of Rs. 3.5 million, had already been finished.
He claimed that the factory’s management was contributing to community development by offering hundreds of scholarships to students at Kohat University of Science and Technology, Quaid-i-Azam College, and a technical college.
According to the official, the unit had also contributed to the Al-Khidmat Hospital’s operating costs by providing an ambulance and an X-Ray equipment. He claimed that the factory’s management had planted more than 50,000 trees in the vicinity to reduce pollution.
