Pakistan Emergency Relief Work to be highlighted
The work of the Hashim Welfare Hospital in taking relief and medical aid to displaced people in Pakistan will be highlighted at the charities Annual General Meeting on Sunday 5th July. The annual meeting starts at 3.00p.m. in the Education Centre at St. Peter’s Hospital, Guildford Road, Chertsey and is open to everyone.
Supporters will hear more about the progress of the hospital which is located in rural Pakistan at Pindi Hashim about half way between Islamabad and Lahore. It starts at 3.00p.m. with a short prayer which is followed by reports from the Founder and Chairman, Dr Idrees Awan and other officers of the Charity. A feature of this years meeting will be a report from Slough Councillor Pervez Choudhry, who has been organising the work of the charity in providing relief and medical aid to people displaced from the Swat valley.
Since June 2003 the charity has treated over 127,000 patients. Work to complete the new Eye Department at Hashim Welfare Hospital is progressing well and pictures of both the Swat valley relief work and progress at the Hashim Welfare Hospital will be shown at the AGM.
Speaking about the work of the charity Founder, Chairman and Urological Surgeon Dr Idrees Awan says: “Without the support of our many friends, family and NHS staff we would not be in the strong position we find ourselves today. Able to expand the Hashim Welfare Hospital and provide relief and medical aid to the people displaced from the Swat valley. I particularly want to say a big thank you to the communities in Slough, Berkshire; Woking, Surrey and Blackburn, Lancashire who have been magnificent in their support for the charity.
“We would like to see as many people as possible join us for the annual meeting so that we can say thank you personally for their support.”
