Quetta – Civil Society Balochistan has lauded Chief Minister (CM) of Balochistan Nawab Sanaullah Zehri for helping cancer patient Hajira by donating 1 million rupees, on Monday.

Senator Shehbaz Durrani, on behalf of CM Balochistan handed over an open cheque of 1 million rupees to team of Civil Society Balochistan for Hajira.

Hajira is a 13 year old girl, who belongs from Kharan district and suffers from acute myeloid leukemia which is a type of blood cancer. Hajira is under treatment in Aga Khan University Hospital (AKUH) and more funds are required to continue her treatment.

Civil Society Balochistan along with Quetta Online volunteers group started a fund raising campaign for Hajira back in December. In that campaign, Senator Shehbaz Durrani on behalf of Nawab Sanaullah Zehri committed to donate 1 million rupees.

On Monday, Senator Durrani, called the team of Civil Society Balochistan to CM house to hand them over the cheque for treatment of Hajira. Cheque was immediately deposited into the bank account of AKUH hospital by team of Civil Society Balochistan.

“We are immensely thankful to Nawab Sanaullah Zehri for helping out the cancer patient who belongs from an under-privileged family,” Sami Zarkoon, Convener of Civil Society Balochistan told Balochistan Express.

Mr. Zarkoon also thanked Senator Shehbaz Durrani for taking time out of his busy schedule to handover the cheque of donation for Hajira.

During the fund raising campaign conducted in December, Advisor to CM on Finance Mir Khalid Langove had committed to pay 2 million and Member of Provincial Assembly (MPA) Syed Muhammad Raza committed to pay 200,000 rupees.

Expressing his optimism, Mr. Zarkoon said, “we hope both Mir Khalid Langove and Agha Muhammad Raza make good on their promises and submit the donations, that they have committed, directly to AKUH.”
