LAHORE - Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif has said that the process of provision of medical assistance to the Hunza affectees will continue unabated. He expressed these views while presiding over a meeting to review rehabilitation work of the affectees on Sunday. Senators, Assembly Members and senior officers of Health and Relief departments were present on the occasion. The CM expressed his satisfaction over the fact that doctors and paramedical staff of Punjab were performing their professional responsibilities with commitment and dedication and visiting different calamity-hit villages for the treatment of patients rather than limiting their services to relief camps.

He directed Secretary Health to ensure proper utilisation of the medicines. The chief minister also appreciated the humanitarian spirit and professional commitment of the members of the medical teams who have left their homes for serving their ailing brethren. Shahbaz said that PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif was in contact with the affectees and the leaders of PML-N Hunza. Health Department authorities while giving their report of relief activities to the chief minister informed that the medical teams from Punjab were providing medical assistance to the patients after a long and arduous journey to Chillat, Minapin and Ghanaish. Most of the patients were suffering from pneumonia, respiratory and skin diseases. He was further informed that the medical team also included lady doctors and paramedical staff who are providing services in gynae and mother and child health.
