Delegation of doctors from Saudi Arab to set up camp in Karachi


KARACHI: Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to Pakistan Nawaf bin Saeed Al-Maliki had brought a delegation of doctors of King Salman Medical Centre with him to set up a weeklong medical camp in Karachi and Shikarpur.

The Saudi doctors would check eye and heart patients and would perform surgeries, if required.

Sindh Health Minister Dr Azra Pechuho informing the visiting delegation that eye surgery could be performed at the camp suggested the visiting team that open-heart surgery could be performed only at relevant operating theatres. “We have cardiac hospitals in Sukkur, Tando Mohammed Khan and in Karachi where open heart surgery can be performed easily,” she added.

The chief minister asked the health minister and secretary to hold a separate meeting with the Saudi Arabian doctors and make a proper plan for their camps and provide them necessary facilities and security.

The CM also presented Ajrak and traditional Sindhi caps to the visiting guests and thanked them for their support and cooperation.
