BAHAWALNAGAR: Pakistani film actor Meera announced on Sunday that a charity hospital will be constructed in Haroonabad in her mother's name, which will cater to over a million residents in the area.
The hospital, Darul Shafqat will aim to provide low-cost health care in District Bahawalangar and the nearby rural areas.
The land where the hospital is to be constructed was donated by the people in Haroonabad. As per initial plans, the hospital will be equipped with over five hundred beds.
Meera is also set to work on a film which will be based on the lives of people in Haroonabad and will also highlight the need for a new hospital in the region.
She said that the movie will be screened internationally to raise funds for the hospital.
Meera's mother is a philanthropist in her own right and runs a charity organization which provides vocational and technical training to women from impoverished communities.
