Through the online Chitral Today newspaper, we would like to request the district administration of Chitral and the health department along with the Chitral Scouts to open a dispensary in our area.
The villages of istach, Dizg, Khruzg and Mahting consist of about 250 to 300 houses and there are no healthcare centres in the whole area. One dispensary was set up in Dizg some years ago but it was later closed due to unknown reasons.
During elections campaign, our elected representatives promise many things but never fulfil them. The people of these villages have got nothing from our lawmakers and the local govt has also failed to pay attention on resolving local issues.
Having a centre where elderly persons, women and children, can get basic healthcare facilities is the basic human right but we are still deprived of this right.
We appeal to the authorities concerned to provide us the basic need of life.
