LAHORE (PR) – Mobilink Foundation has contributed Rs 3 million towards the construction of an out-door facility at the under-construction Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Center (SKMCH&RC) in Peshawar. A cheque for this contribution was presented by Tariq Durrani, Regional Director (Sales), Mobilink to Dr Faisal Sultan, CEO SKMCH&RC at a ceremony organized in SKMCH&RC Lahore.

Since the commencement of SKMCH&RC’s first facility in Lahore, nearly 40,000 patients have visited the facility from the province of KPK. The need for a facility in the province is further amplified by the existing lack of access to diagnosis and treatment.

The contribution by Mobilink Foundation is intended to assist SKMH’s efforts to provide state-of-the-art facilities to the people of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa (KPK).Construction on the project has started in March 2011 and is expected to be completed within 3 years.
