The name of Mr. Muhammad Ramzan Chhipa (Sitara-i-Imtiaz), an eminent Social Worker, is not merely a name of a person belonging to any particular caste, faction, sect or community.
This is the name of a very simple, highly ambitious, most energetic, very active, much dynamic, well-dignified and most competent person who, having vast experience, acumen and know-how, has been diligently serving the humanity and vigorously working for the causes and services to common people without discrimination of any caste, creed or colour, having no affiliation with any political or religious party or any ethnic or businessmen community group since the year 1987. This gentleman, always clad in green clothes is striving hard for the sanctity of human rights.
Mr. Muhammad Ramzan Chhipa had started his social and welfare work from scratch, staying before the gate of Civil Hospital in Karachi and using his own pocket-money on different heads of charity. He used to help those who were sick, penniless and needy. He provided comfort and mental solace to the poor, worried and wretched persons through all possible means. He used to provide help and succour to the suffering people in times of their extreme needs. This God-fearing man was inspired by the green colour of our National Flag. As such, from the prime of his life he has still been putting on green coloured dress of Shalwar and Kameez with ordinary rubber slipper in his feet round the year in all seasons.
The humanitarian services of Mr. Muhammad Ramzan Chhipa and his welfare work for the causes of humanity caught sight of local philanthropists and drew the attention of businessmen community who extended to him their helping hands and generous supports. Those helps and supports encouraged and exhorted Mr. Muhammad Ramzan Chhipa to organize and form a welfare organization.
The said idea was materialized in the year 1987 when Karachi was rocked by two bomb blasts in Bohri Bazar at Saddar area Karachi, causing hundreds of people wounded and dead. This noble and respectable man Mr. Muhammad Ramzan Chhipa was shocked by the horrible scenes he witnessed in the local hospital in Karachi when victims in large number were lying in the pool of their own blood. It was then decided by him to take positive step towards a long journey and finally through his continuous hard work, Mr. Muhammad Ramzan Chhipa laid foundation to a welfare organization. Thus, by the grace of almighty Allah, in the year 1987 Chhipa Welfare Association came into existence.
His welfare organization is registered with the Government of Pakistan and Government of Sindh vide Registration No. DSW(2068)-K and National Tax No. 2205404-9. The accounts of Chhipa Welfare Association are regularly audited each year and are exempted from Income Tax.

His Chhipa Ambulances are always on the alert and ready to meet any emergency situation.
In frequent road accidents, sudden disaster, bomb blast, firing, stamped, heavy rain, train collision, building and bridge collapse, unexpected event and emergency, his Chhipa Ambulances equipped with first-aid box, oxygen cylinder and paramedics hurriedly rush and always reach the spots FIRST to the rescue of suffering people and for providing them immediate help.
