Shaukat Khanum held its 6th ‘Festival of Life’ : A Celebration of Hope & Life

Published

on

The Friends of Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre organized a successful fundraiser for the cancer patients being treated at the hospital.

The event was a celebration of hope and life featuring activities to engage people of all age groups. Reflecting this spirit, the arena was filled with colorful balloons and palpable energy radiating off the compassionate, wonderful and like minded people.

Many individuals came forward to support the cause by setting up stalls. They included a variety of traditional clothes, jewelry, crafts, furniture, and scrumptious food. A stall was set-up by a cancer survivor as well, testament to the fact that such events provide an opportunity to patients to feel integrated back into the society after battling an illness that tests patients not only physically but also financially and emotionally. There was a special corner for children featuring jumping castles, ball pit, giant snakes and ladders
and other fun activities. The fashion fraternity also played an important role by donating clothes for the Fashion Lounge that generated nearly Rs. 1 million.

The event brought together people from different walks of life to enjoy a beautiful day in Lahore with their families in support of a good cause. The people thoroughly enjoyed the passionate performance by Laal band where Taimur Rahman sang anthems of hope along with his two adorable little girls. There was also a magic show which thrilled children. The lucky draws were conducted by several celebrities including film-star Shan Shahid. Politician Waleed Iqbal, actor Faisal Rahman, motivational speaker Muniba
Mazari, and designer Maheen Kardar were also spotted at the event. The event catered to people of all age groups and it was a delight to see three generations spending quality time together. The organizing committee of the event comprised of passionate and hardworking individuals, headed by Bina Chaudhry, a cancer survivor, whose efforts to celebrate hope, courage and life will help save many more lives. Mrs. Chaudhry is a living example of the fact that cancer is curable and how a second chance at life can inspire hope in many others who are either fighting the same disease,
know a loved one fighting it, or who simply want to support others going through a difficult time. Dr. Muhammad Aasim Yusuf, the Chief Medical Officer of the Hospital, also spoke at the event and shared an update about the third Shaukat Khanum Hospital being constructed in Karachi. The annual operating budget for all project this year is Rs. 13.5 billion. Each year, the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust is able to achieve its fundraising
target owing to its supporters and generous donors who believe in the integrity of this institution and value its contribution towards humanity.
Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital was a dream which seemed impossible two decades ago. However, people from different socio-economic backgrounds contributed in various ways, owned this dream and eventually, turn it into a reality. Today, by supporting the Hospital, people continue to feel as part of a miracle. The construction and functioning of the Hospital were made possible when many friends of Shaukat Khanum Hospital took ownership of the project. This sense of social responsibility and citizenship makes us all proud Pakistanis.
