Free Medical Camp by Peace Foundation For PEP School, Raichand Menghwar According to the PEP sustainability report, a free medical camp in the village of Raichand Menghwar, Mirpurkhas was provided for the community. This medical camp was supported by an organization called Peace Foundation that works with many villages in rural Sindh.
In this free medical camp, 116 patients in total were treated which included women and children. There were over 25 women who needed ultrasound and treatment for pregnancy, and there were children who were treated through first aid and medicines. It was the first time for the village of Raichand Menghwar to visit a free medical camp that was extremely beneficial , because for women travelling to other cities for checkup was not accessible. This free medical camp was also an initiative to build relationships with peer organizations and to ensure sustainability in the community.
The objective to build PEP schools was to provide quality education as well as to empower communities to raise their standards of living. By having PEP school in a village, the community developed ownership through the seed of education, and emerged as a sustainable valuable society.
Marginalized To Valued Communities Building relationships with other peer organizations, or the government gives the belief to a community that they are accepted as a society, and their identity has value. The communities grow out from the bonds of being marginalized and walk in to the reality of being a valued community.
