This ancestral haveli belonged to the late Chiraghdin and his sons. The historic place is now being converted into an Infectious Diseases Center in order to serve the local community. In the course of this transformation, we are making sure to preserve the history and maintain the haveli’s unique character that connects the present to the past. The transformation is only limited to structural support. The ground floor comprises a reception area, the Shafi Community Hall, the IPAC Infectious Diseases Center with a telehealth clinic, a screening lab, and an immunization center. Moreover, there will be a lab, a pharmacy, an administration room, and a beautiful courtyard to act as a waiting area. The first floor contains family guest areas and a terrace for family reunions. The foundation of construction was laid down on January 23, 2021. The construction has been speeding up each day and the project will be completed by September 01, 2021.
