ISLAMABAD: Slum dwellers of French Colony F-7 have got a state-of-the-art water filtration plant.
The filtration plant has been installed at the cost of Rs800,000 and has the capacity to provide 1,000 litres of clean drinking water per hour.
The plant has been installed by MOL Pakistan, a Hungarian oil and gas exploration and production company operating in Pakistan, under its corporate social responsibility initiative.
A simple ceremony was held at the location where MOL Pakistan Managing Director Dr Gabor Vakarcs and MOL’s Group Regional Vice President Ali Murtaza Abbas along with other senior officials formally inaugurated the plant.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Vakarcs said: “Water scarcity and provision of clean drinking water to the community of Islamabad has become an enormous challenge for the local administration. Under such circumstances, MOL Pakistan decided to come up with a solution to provide clean drinking water through a well-maintained filtration unit to the residents of this area.”
While talking to the local community, Ali Murtaza Abbas said, “MOL Group is a responsible corporate entity that never compromises on the health and safety of the residents of its operational areas, wherever it operates globally,” he said.
