Sindh CM visits SIUTJune 9, 2015
KARACHI: Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah on Wednesday visited Liver Transplant Unit at Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT).
Prof Adib Rizvi, Director SIUT, thanked the chief minister for his continuous support through Sindh government for transplant program. He said although parliament had passed the law for “deceased organ donation”, this program is still not taking pace in our country. The electronic and print media are continuously trying to educate the masses for this noble program, so that thousands of sick people could be saved.
He said even our Ulema had supported this program. He cited the recommendations of seminar organized by Shaikh Zaid Islamic Centre, University of Karachi. Mufti Muneebur Rehman has played a vital role in these recommendations.
He said SIUT needed support of government, and electronic media to educate masses, so that they could come forward to donate their organs.
He said it’s very important to highlight the role of government controlled electronic media to educate the public on daily basis.
