Shaukat Khanum Cancer treatment and Research Hospital

There are only a few things in this world that bring people joy and true sense of acheivement. Charity is one of those things. And what better way to kick it off than a charity drive for a cause. These days Imran Khan , Pakistans former cricket team captain and currently an active politician is running a charity drive for his cancer treatment and research hospital, the Shaukat Khanum Cancer treatment and Research Hospital. Along with him are former Miss World, Shushmita Sen and another former Pakistan cricket team captain Wasim Akram. Their live charity drive telethon is being broadcasted on Geo TV throughout the 9th and 10th of September. Additional information on the telethon broadcast schedules and timings, the donations hotline, and charity pledges hotlines is available at this website.

Imran Khan founded the hospital after winning the world cup for Pakistan in early 90s. Both running the hospital and treatment of cancer patients are done through charities, zakat, and donations from people all over the world. Therefore the treatment for the poor is completely free.

They have a set donations mark that they are trying to acheive for this years patient treatment and any amount of donations would help a great deal. People can get additional details and make pledges and donations through the Shaukat Khanum Hospital Website.

In addition, a very cool Red Wrist Band Campain for Cancer Patients treatment with ‘Cancer is curable’ engraved on it has been initiated by the doctors and TOTAL Parco Pakistan Ltd. These wrist bands are also available at select Bata shoe stores across Pakistan.

Lets help drive cancer into yesterdays problem…
