Thousands of workers of Muttahida Qaumi Movement, including the office-bearers and members of its coordination committee, Karachi Muzafati Committee, central departments, sectors and units and Haq Parast parliamentarians on Thursday donated blood for the poor and needy patients to mark the 60th birth anniversary of their party chief, Altaf Hussain.
The blood donation camp held under the aegis of MQM’s Medical Aid Committee at Azizabad’s Lal Qila ground was attended, among others, by Muttahida’s Coordination Committee’s Deputy Conveners, Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Engr. Nasir Jamal, Dr Nusrat, member of the coordination committee, legislators and office-bearers of KTC, sectors and units. They also donated their blood to express their love and affection with Mr Hussain at the camp that functioned from 10am to 6pm.
Speaking on the occasion, the Coordination Committee’s Deputy Convener, Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, lauded the Medical-Aid Committee for organizing the blood donation camp and said that spirit behind the programme was Altaf Hussain’s philosophy of serving ailing humanity.
He said that at a time when thousands of precious lives were lost merely because of non-availability medicines and blood, the Medical Aid Committee’s act of collecting blood for the poor and needy ailing humanity was highly commendable and, as such, office-bearers of the committee deserved full appreciation for their humanitarian work.
Dr Siddiqui also lauded the MQM workers for donating blood for the poor and needy patients in a large number.
