LAHORE (PR) - Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre is going to launch its “Hide Collection” campaign on Eidul Azha.

The hospital has planned to extend this campaign in 20 major cities of the country this year, other than Lahore, including Karachi, Peshawar, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad and Multan where the Hospital have made the arrangements for hide collection.

As per previous practice, a large number of volunteers and the hospital staff will participate actively in this campaign. The management has also established a call-centre in the hospital to entertain the telephone calls from the hide donors in this regard and the team of volunteers and the Hospital staff will collect hide from homes on a phone call as well.

Hospital is also providing Online Qurbani services this year. The money collected from this campaign is spent on the treatment of poor cancer patients. 75 per cent of the patients are being treated free of cost in this hospital. The Hospital management has appealed to the people to donate the hide of their sacrificial animals to SKMCH&RC and also keep the time factor in mind as without the proper processing of the animal hide, it’s value decreases up to 10 percent.
