Dr Pervaiz said that clean water would not only save the people from diseases but also strengthen their immunity level.

 He announced that four more plants would be established in Sahiwal city within two months.

Ch Sultan Mehmood and Zia ur Rehman Khan told the gathering that this filtration plant costs Rs1.3 million and the club would provide more plants for the benefits of the common people.
