There are several communities within Mughalpura area and the pressure of population on inadequate infrastructure resulted in acute problems of Health, Sanitation, Education and Environment. Under such circumstances educated youth and few elderly persons organized themselves in a community-based organization to work for the welfare of the population. This group identified their major problems as Health and Medical Facilities. Therefore, they decided to setup a Free Dispensary in this area and constituted an organization under the name of “AL-EHSAN WELFARE SOCIETY” on October 8th, 1993. With this humble work for the uplift of the community 23 Years ago had paved the way for a “Social Welfare Complex” as of today.
