Rotary Club donates wheelchairs to PSRD

Pakistan Society for Rehabilitation of the Disabled (PSRD) Old Students Association organised an annual Eid gift function to present gifts to the children at PSRD School that primarily caters to the needs of disabled children and has more than 200 students.

Mr Sherazee graced the occasion as the chief guest while District Governor Nominee (DGN) Rotarian Shehzad Ahmed was invited as the guest of honour.

The ceremony started with the recitation of the Holy Quran after which one of the alumni presented the annual report of the Old Students Association.

It was informed that many old students from the school are performing responsibilities in their respective organisations with dedication and commitment.

Later, gifts were distributed among students of the school by DGN Shehzad Ahmed and members of the PSRD Executive Committee.

In his speech, DGN Shehzad appreciated the efforts of the Old Students Association and PSRD School management in organising such a wonderful function. He thanked the corporate organisations, such as Mobilink and Metro, for sponsoring wheelchairs and gifts for the students.

He also motivated the students to study diligently, so they could become productive members of society and be one of the donors for their school in future.

Rotary Club of Lahore Garrison also donated four wheelchairs to the deserving students of PSRD School.

After the function, Mrs Parveen Umer, General Secretary PSRD, informed that PSRD has started providing free artificial limbs to the poor through the Rotary Foundation Matching Grant and the progress report would be submitted on a regular basis.
