The Kalasha are ancient tribe of Pakistan and they have their own way of life, their own religion, language, rituals and their own identity. there are no adequate medical facilities in valley. seeing this emergent need CHCS has established a small clinic to provide medical facilities on regular basis.

This will solve their medical needs in case of emergencies and day to day medical problems at their doorsteps. The medical clinic is being run by a trained medical worker from the KALASH community. Along with medical check up, free medicines will be provided and the complicated cases will be referred to the District Headquarter Hospital in Chitral.
