Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre

Rotarians from several clubs of Lahore visited Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre. The visit was organised by DGN Shahzad Ahmed with the purpose of exploring ways that Rotary can help Shaukat Khanum Hospital. The visitors were accorded a warm welcome and a comprehensive tour of the hospital.

The tour was followed a presentation cum Q&A session by Dr. Faisal Sultan, CEO of the Shaukat Khanum. He also discussed some of the future plans and highlighted some projects where Rotarians can possibly help raise the funds.

Speaking at the occassion, DGN Shehzad Ahmad said that he hopes to present SKMCH&RC as the main focus and most important matching grant project when he becomes the District Governor in 2010- 2011. But he does not intend to hold this good work till then and therefore wants to initiate the work and efforts from now. Also, he wants to include other clubs of the district in these efforts who are often asking a common question: What project should we do?

Included in the visitors were many young people who keenly expressed their desire to volunteer as well as help the hospital with its fund raising.
