Coastal communities lack the bare minimum health care facilities. The communities face critical issues including the Non-availability of life-saving drugs, procedural equipment, ambulance services & unskilled and untrained health care workers. Only two hospitals namely PNS DHARMAN JAH at Ormara operated by Pakistan Navy & GDA Hospital at Gawadar are available for usual ailments whereas serious patients are referred to Karachi for treatment. Travelling logistics and staying in Karachi for treatment increase the health expenditures to many folds. In case of emergency/accident death rate is quite high due to the non-availability of a trauma center in the area and limited resources.
SAHIL WELFARE ASSOCIATION is trying to fill this gap but a lot more is to be done. Moreover, eye diseases are growing at an alarming rate in the coastal belt which can be credited mainly to the lack of eye care facilities available on the entire coast.
SAHIL WELFARE ASSOCIATION actively contributes to several miscellaneous welfare projects that include the installation of solar panels, provision of clean water, distribution of ration bags, and flood/rain relief operations to support these coastal communities who lack even the most basic of resources required to function a healthy nurturing lifestyle.
Clean and pure drinking water has been a long-standing issue in the area as well. SAHIL WELFARE ASSOCIATION aims to expand its growing facility of providing pure drinking water to the numerous other areas that are still extremely deprived of it. For this purpose, Sahil Welfare Association focused on Installation of ultra-filtration plants, RO plants, conduct of water bores, Solar Panel based water filtration plants along with chillers/ electric coolers and Repair and uplift of Rain Harvesting Projects.
To combat the Non-availability of electricity and prolonged load shedding. SAHIL WELFARE ASSOCIATION has started a program of distributing solar panel sets with electric fans so that coastal citizens can benefit from their natural surroundings. This can help provide relief to some of their problems relating to the unavailability of basic utilities such as electricity via solar panels. With over 200 Solar panel sets worth around Rs. 6.71 M already distributed in Ormara and near villages, SAHIL WELFARE ASSOCIATION plans to find alternative power solutions for the coastal regions. Solar Panel has also been installed at Taqwa mosque Windar and several other locations making them more functional as well.
SAHIL WELFARE ASSOCIATION has undertaken several ration drives since its establishment. With a regular distribution of ration bags to the Coastal and Creek areas, the populace is provided with daily commodities i.e flour, rice, butter, sugar, pulses, etc. Over Rs. 67.55 M has been spent on ration drives so far.
SAHIL WELFARE ASSOCIATION has undertaken several reliable operations in the rain/flood-affected coastal areas and also distributed several necessary relief items to support these operations in order to provide a lifeline to these disaster-stricken areas. SAHIL WELFARE ASSOCIATION participates as much as possible and distributes ration bags, warm clothes & blankets, clean drinking water, tents, and other necessary items. SAHIL WELFARE ASSOCIATION has spent over Rs. 72.36 million in relief and disaster operations.

In terms of rehabilitation projects, the Sahil Welfare Association has undertaken a number of construction projects, including the construction of mud houses in Sujawal. At District Lasbela, Sahil Welfare Association has also collaborated with the World Memon Organization (WMO). Sahil Welfare Association has also implemented a rehabilitation program called “Sponsor a Family” in addition to the construction projects. A family receives Rs 15,000/- per month under this program (up to six months). These efforts have helped to provide much-needed aid and assistance to those in desperate need of rehabilitation.
SAHIL WELFARE ASSOCIATION aims to not just continue but also increase in the number of community welfare programs for coastal/ creek areas.
