As diseases, ignorance and poverty are major obstacles in the prosperity and progress of the country, an intensive crusade is inevitable to be launched against these menaces, said a medical expert.

Addressing the concluding session of a free medical camp, Dr Abrar Munir urged the local philanthropists to organise such medical camps, dispenseries, patients’ welfare societies and charity hospitals to help the ailing humanity. Earlier, hundreds of patients suffering from various diseases benefited from the free consultation, medicines and laboratory tests etc. A team of 11-members of trained and paramedical staff worked for the charitable cause.
