The ground breaking ceremony of the Children and Cardiac Hospital of Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) was performed in Karachi, by Prof. Mehmet Haberal, President Middle East Society for Organ Transplantation (MESOT) and President Baskent University Turkey. He is also founder of International Hebral Transplantation and Education Foundation and Turkic World Transplantation Society.
On this occasion Director SIUT, Prof. Adibul Hasan Rizvi, said that majority of children are the sufferers in our society because of poverty. Children are denied from their basic human right of health and education. In such an atmosphere of suffocation, it has been the philosophy of SIUT to provide free health facility with dignity, to every one without discrimination of cast, creed, colour, language and religion. Even in the field of education SIUT started Zainul Abedin Institute of Medical Technology where everyone can get admission on merit basis and complete their education free of cost.
While appreciating the efforts of Prof. Mehmet Haberal, Prof. Rizvi said he is such a friend of SIUT and Pakistan who has always generously helped us in our difficult times. In 2005, when our whole country was jolted due to natural disaster it was Prof. Haberal who was first to send two planes equipped with medical and necessary goods for earthquake victims and with his help SIUT started medical camps at Abbotabad, Mansehra and Muzaffarabad.
Prof. Mehmet Haberal applauded the efforts of SIUT for providing free medical care and education facilities to the people of this region. He also shared his experiences of cases of renal failure and transplantation in Turkey.
