NA-250 Health Committee organised a Free Eye Camp at Islamia Collegiate, Hijrat Colony on Sunday, February 12, 2017.
The camp was attended by MPA Khurrum Sher Zaman, DMC South Councillor Sairah Khalid, NA-250 Health Committee members Dr. Sanjay Gangwani, Dr. Samiya Noor Khan, CBC Councillor Adeeba Hasan and myself. The camp was an extremely successful event as a large population of the colony were witnessed attending.
A number of patients attending including the elderly were 323 men and 391 women and children. Cataract surgeries diagnosed for free treatment from this camp are 23 whilst 230 reading glasses and 111 eye drops were distributed free of cost.
I appreciate the hard work of CBC Councillor Adeeba Hasan, Dr. Samiya Noor Khan and Dr. Sanjay Gangwani who were helping at the camp.
A special thanks and appreciation goes to UC-29 Hijrat Colony President Ameen Shah, General Secretary Noor Zaman Jadoon, Councillor Fayyaz Khan and their team including their local female workers who were present on the ground from very early in the morning much before the commencement of the camp. They managed the camp smoothly and ensured that every patient was attended to.
Media representatives from all leading television channels were present and interviewed public representatives, MPA PS-112 Khurrum Sher Zaman and DMC South Councillor Sairah Khalid.
