Arts Council Karachi hosted a seminar on breast cancer awareness in the Haseena Moin Hall. Speaking on occasion, President of Arts Council of Pakistan Karachi Muhammad Ahmad Shah has said that Arts Council is a fine arts institution. Still, every school of thought of the society is provided facility here to discuss their problems.
He said that Arts Council is ready to support and facilitate every social and medical awareness campaign. We believe that every section of society is interconnected. He said that civil society should fully support the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign to make it a success, adding that it is a dangerous disease that affects a woman and the entire family. Because women inhabit the home and family, the disease can only be controlled with awareness, precaution, and timely checkups. He further said that the treatment of the disease is expensive, so civil society philanthropists and donors should raise funds for the treatment. The Arts Council will also play its role in this cause and will continue to do so.
On occasion, the founder of Pink Ribbon Pakistan Umar Aftab, Member Sindh Assembly Rabia Azfar Nizami, Senior breast cancer surgeon Dr Shahista Khan, Dr Rufina Soomro, Senior Journalist Aafia Salam, and secretary-general NFEH Ruqia Naeem also addressed the seminar.
